MACUNGIE – In his continuing effort to help residents battle identity theft, Rep. Ryan Mackenzie (R-Lehigh) will be holding a public paper shredding event on Saturday, April 13, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot of the Lower Macungie Township Complex, located at 3450 Brookside Road in Macungie. The township and Delizioso Italian Grill have once again joined Mackenzie in co-hosting the event. 

“We are pleased to be able to offer this free service twice a year and provide residents with a safe and secure way to destroy any documents containing sensitive information,” said Mackenzie. “Identity theft is a growing crime, with scammers coming up with new schemes all the time to steal our money. This event is a great way to avoid becoming a victim.”  

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 of the 187th Legislative District 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 shredding event, call Mackenzie’s office at 610-965-9933 or 833-933-3675 (toll free).
