Quinn to Host Shredding and Recycling Event
HARRISBURG – Rep. Marguerite Quinn (R-Bucks) will expand her annual free paper shredding event to include additional opportunities for residents of the 143rd Legislative District to properly dispose of or recycle unwanted items.

The event, which will feature an on-site industrial paper shredder, will take place on Saturday, June 3, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Groveland Elementary School, 1100 N. Easton Road in Plumstead Township. Additionally, numerous community groups will be on hand to collect various items for disposal or reuse.

“The amount of trash Americans discard each year has been on a steady increase for decades. A few years ago, 254 million tons of garbage, or 4.4 pounds per person each day, was sent to landfills,” Quinn said. “Some of that trash isn’t being disposed of in a responsible manner. Other so-called trash items are still suitable for continued use and could easily be donated for further usage.”

Individuals are encouraged to bring the following items for proper disposal or reuse:

• Faded, worn or torn flags (no flag poles).
• Eyeglasses/sunglasses, hearing aids.
• Unused or expired over-the-counter or prescription medications (no needles or Epi-pens).
• Clothing, shoes, games, toys and books (all in good shape and usable condition).
• Cellphones, chargers, small appliances and small household items.
• Can tabs.

This event has been very popular and there have been long lines in the past. Quinn encourages all attendees to please be patient.

For the shredding aspect of the event, individuals are limited to two file boxes of paper for shredding. Participants will have the opportunity to watch their paper being shredded on-site. Paper shredding will be available until noon.

For more information, please contact Quinn’s office at (215) 489-2126.
