HARRISBURG – As a free service to the community, Rep. Aaron Bernstine (R-Beaver/Butler/Lawrence) will host a Shredding Event on Saturday, Oct. 31, from 10 a.m. to noon, at the North Sewickley Township Firehall located at 887 Mercer Road in Beaver Falls.
“Identity theft is one of the fastest-growing crimes across the Commonwealth and we need to put a stop to it,” said Bernstine. “By allowing residents free use of an industrial-sized shredding truck, they can be assured that old documents, such as credit card statements, utility bills and medical bills, do not fall into the wrong hands.”
This event is for items that contain information such as bank account or Social Security numbers. Residents are asked not to bring old phone books, magazines, cards, letters, folders, newspapers junk mail, etc., as these items can be recycled. There is no need to remove staples or paper clips, but documents should be taken out of binders and notebooks.
“I am pleased to be able to provide the community with a secure way to shred large amounts of personal documents and reduce the risk of becoming a victim of identity theft,” Bernstine added.
No advance registration is required to participate in the event. For more information, residents should call Bernstine’s office at 724-752-2120.
