Murt to Host Community Paper Shredding and Recycling Event
HARRISBURG-- Rep. Tom Murt (R-Montgomery/Philadelphia) will host a free paper shredding and recycling event to give local residents the opportunity to safely destroy personal paperwork and properly dispose of electronic equipment.

The event, which will feature an on-site industrial paper shredder, will take place on Saturday, April 12, from 9-11:30 a.m., in the parking lot of Lower Moreland High School, 555 Red Lion Road in Huntingdon Valley.

“Identity theft is a growing problem that requires us to become more proactive in protecting ourselves,” Murt said. “These thieves are brazen in their search for credit card numbers, bank account information and Social Security numbers. This is an important pre-emptive strike.”

GigaBiter, LLC, will be accepting electronic devices and small appliances free of charge
for recycling.

Used cell phones will also be accepted and donated to Laurel House, a non-profit dedicated to ending domestic violence in our communities.

“If you have old cell phones that you no longer need, please bring them with you to this event to help Laurel House in its mission to keep women safe from abuse,” Murt said.

For more information, please contact Ed Diasio in Murt’s office at 215-674-3755.
