KENNETT SQUARE, PA — State Rep. Christina Sappey, D-Chester, has announced a free Drive-Thru Shred Event scheduled for Saturday, June 1, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Unionville High School in Kennett Square. This timely initiative offers residents of the 158th Legislative District a secure method to dispose of sensitive documents, highlighting a proactive approach to data protection and recycling.

The prevalence of identity theft has escalated in recent years, with millions of Americans falling victim annually. The Drive-Thru Shred Event directly addresses this concern by providing a community-based solution that not only ensures the secure destruction of personal information but also advocates for the recycling of paper materials. “I am happy to provide a safe and secure way to dispose of sensitive documents and personal information while also promoting sustainability by recycling paper materials,” said Rep. Sappey, underscoring the dual benefits of the event.

Participants in the shredding event are asked to remain in their vehicles for contactless service, opening their trunks to allow staff members to unload up to four boxes or bags of documents per person. These materials will then be shredded on-site, ensuring that all personal information is destroyed before disposal. This process not only safeguards individuals’ privacy but also contributes to the reduction of waste in landfills, reinforcing the importance of recycling in community waste management strategies.

In a commendable display of community spirit, the event will also feature a collection drive by Kennett Area Community Service for non-perishable food donations. While not mandatory, participants are encouraged to contribute, linking effective waste management with support for local food banks in a collective effort to address both environmental and social needs.
