– In his continuing effort to help residents battle identity theft, Rep. Ryan Mackenzie (R-Berks/Lehigh) will be co-hosting a public paper shredding event on Saturday, April 30, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot of the Lower Macungie Township Complex, located at 3402 Brookside Road, Macungie
. The township and Sen. Pat Browne (R-Lehigh) join Mackenzie in hosting the event.
“Identity theft is a fast-growing crime, and our event gives residents a safe and secure way to destroy documents containing their personal and financial data,” said Mackenzie. “Once that information is used fraudulently, it can take considerable time and money to restore a person’s good financial standing. That’s why residents are encouraged to take advantage of this free service we are providing.”
Residents are invited to bring up to four boxes of paperwork, the approximate size of carry-on luggage, per vehicle for shredding. There is no need to remove staples or paper clips, but documents should be taken out of binders and notebooks. Attendees are asked to remain in their vehicles while staff and volunteers unload the documents to be shredded.
Because this event is meant for documents containing sensitive, identifying information, it is requested that residents not bring items which do not fit this description as these can be thrown out or recycled at home.
This event is for residents only – businesses are kindly asked to dispose of their sensitive documents on their own. Due to the popularity of these events, no boxes will be accepted prior to the start time.
For more information on the event, call Mackenzie’s office at 610-965-9933.
