Rep. Dan Deasy and I will be holding a shredding and medication take back event on Saturday, Sept. 25 from 8 – 11 a.m. (or until truck is full). The event will take place in the parking lot at Our Lady of Victory Maronite Church, located at 1000 Tropical Avenue in Beechview.
Documents will be shredded on-site by a reputable and bonded company. All papers must be loose, no binder clips or paper clips, and documents cannot be in binders. The Allegheny County Sheriff’s Office will be present to collect any unused/unwanted prescription medications that will be disposed of safely as part of their Project D.U.M.P.
Staff will be wearing masks and gloves. All attendees must stay in vehicles and wear a mask. Recycling must be in paper bags or cardboard boxes and placed in your trunk or in the back of your vehicle.
With consumer fraud and identity theft continuing to be an issue, we are hosting these events to not only to raise awareness and promote prevention, but also to provide individuals with the opportunity to have unneeded, confidential documents destroyed free of charge. You may bring documents that contain personal information such as social security numbers, credit card numbers and bank account numbers.
