WESTMORELAND COUNTY – Rep. Eric Nelson (R-Westmoreland) will hold a free, onsite shredding event for residents of the 57th Legislative District on Wednesday, June 2, from 4-6 p.m. The event will take place at the Hempfield Township Park and Athletic Complex at 220 Forbes Trail Road, Greensburg.

There is a limit of four bags or boxes per household. Examples of items you may want to bring include bank and credit card statements, tax documents, insurance claim forms and anything else that lists a social security number. Staples, paper clips and manila folders are acceptable. The documents received are shredded in a truck onsite and then taken to a local paper recycling plant to be treated and reused. Only personal shredding is allowed. No documents from commercial businesses will be accepted.

Please note that this event may be canceled by the shredding company should inclement weather be forecasted during the scheduled event times. 

"In today’s world, identity theft is unfortunately very common,” said Nelson. “I am happy to help my constituents protect their personal information with regular shred events. If you aren’t able to make this event, please remember that personal information should always be kept safe and secure until it can be disposed of. When destroying personal information, it should be shredded or burned.”

Should you have any questions about this event, please contact Nelson’s district office at 724-834-6400.
