HARRISBURG -- Rep. Chris Quinn (R-Delaware) is inviting the citizens of the 168th Legislative District to bring their unwanted documents for safe disposal at his free paper shredding event on Saturday, May 11, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Penn State’s Brandywine campus, 25 Yearsley Mill Road in Middletown.

“Shredding events help our environment by promoting recycling and helping prevent identity theft by safely destroying personal documents,” said Quinn. “The public has always responded positively to these opportunities, bringing thousands of pounds of health and financial records and other private, personal documents to be destroyed and disposed of properly.”

There is a two-box limit on documents to ensure as many citizens as possible have the opportunity to participate. The event will be held rain or shine and will end at 1 p.m. or when the truck is full.

In addition, Quinn said citizens are urged to bring their unwanted, unused or expired medications to the event for collection by Delaware County District Attorney Katayoun Copelands’s Heroin Task Force. The task force will have its drug take-back van and mobile drop-off boxes available at the site of the shredding event.

The 168th Legislative District includes Media and Chester Heights boroughs as well as Middletown, Edgmont, Newtown, Upper Providence and Thornbury townships, and part of Marple Township.
