SPRINGFIELD, PA – October 20, 2021 – Senator Tim Kearney and state Rep. Dave Delloso today announced that they will jointly host a free E-Waste and Shredding Event on Saturday, Oct. 30 at Interboro High School in Prospect Park, PA from 9 a.m. until noon.
This event is open to residents; no commercial businesses will be allowed. Constituents are encouraged to come out to the event to dispose of unneeded and confidential documents. All material will be shredded onsite and recycled at a later time.
“One of the best ways to protect ourselves against consumer fraud and identity theft is when we securely dispose of sensitive information,” said Senator Kearney. “It’s a proactive measure that will protect you in the future, and I hope that residents come out to take advantage of the free service.”
Each car will be allowed to shred up to four boxes/bags of documents.
Residents can also securely dispose of old electronics during the event. Acceptable items for e-waste disposal include old laptops, tablets, computers towers, smartphones, and hard drives.
Televisions and any other electronic device not listed will not be accepted at this event.
“I’m proud to partner with Senator Kearney to help folks get rid of their electronic waste,” said Rep. Delloso. “This is now a critical step we all need to take in order to protect against identity theft in these digital times.”
