KENNETT SQUARE, PA — State Rep. Christina Sappey, D-Chester is inviting residents to a free drive-thru shred event from 9 a.m. to noon (or until the trucks are full) Saturday, June 11. This year’s shred event is being held at a new location, Unionville High School, 750 Unionville Road in Kennett Square. Staff will be on hand to direct drivers.
“Each year more than 10 million Americans have their personal information stolen,” said Sappey. “Proper disposal of confidential items can help protect people and their family against identity theft. I am pleased again to hold this shredding event to prevent information from falling into the wrong hands.”
Participants are asked to remain in their car and open their trunk, staff members will then empty the car and the materials will be shredded on-site.
The shred event is for individuals only, not businesses. Only paper will be accepted. Please do not bring binders, binder clips or books. There is a four box or bag limit per car. The bags/boxes will be returned after they are emptied.
Kennett Area Community Services will be on-site to collect nonperishable food donations from attendees. While donations are welcome and encouraged, they are not required to access the free shredding services.
Anyone with questions should contact Sappey’s office at (484) 200-8264.
