HARRISBURG –Rep. Jill Cooper (R-Westmoreland) will be hosting a Mobile Shredding Event on Saturday, Aug. 12, from 9-11 a.m. The event will take place at her Washington Township/Export Office in the Donal Plaza, 105 Pfeffer Road, Suite 5, in Export.

"In today’s world, identity theft is unfortunately very common,” said Cooper. “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 properly. When destroying personal information, it should be shredded or burned.”

There is a limit of two bags or boxes per household. Examples of items to be destroyed 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; however, books, magazines or metal binding materials other than staples cannot be shredded. The documents received are shredded in a truck on-site 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.

For any questions about this event, please contact Cooper’s district office at 724-387-9113.

The 55th Legislative District includes the cities of Arnold, Lower Burrell (part) and New Kensington; the townships of Bell, Derry (part), Loyalhanna, Salem, Upper Burrell and Washington; the boroughs of Avonmore, Delmont, Export, New Alexandria and Oklahoma; and the Municipality of Murrysville.
