HARRISBURG – Rep. Eric Nelson (R-Hempfield) will host his re-scheduled shredding event on Monday, Oct. 22, from 4-6 p.m., at the North Hempfield Volunteer Fire Department, 145 Old State Route 66, Greensburg.
The previous event had been set for last month, but had to be postponed due to the weather. It may be postponed again by the shredding company should inclement weather be forecasted. Those with questions about whether it will be held may call Nelson’s office at 724-834-6400 on the day of the event.
“I’m hopeful Mother Nature cooperates, and we will be able to hold this paper shredding event,” Nelson said. “It offers a great opportunity to take steps to protect oneself from identity theft by having personal documents securely destroyed.”
At the shredding event, no more than four bags or boxes per household are permitted, and no businesses, please. Examples of items to bring include bank and credit card statements, tax documents, insurance claim forms and anything that lists a Social Security number. Staples, paper clips and manila folders are acceptable. The documents received are securely shredded by a truck on site and then taken to a local paper recycling plant to be treated and reused.
The 57th Legislative District includes the following Westmoreland County communities: the city of Greensburg; the townships of Hempfield (part) and Salem; and the boroughs of Delmont, Hunker, New Stanton, South Greensburg, Southwest Greensburg and Youngwood.
