Free paper shredding event scheduled in O’Hara

Tawnya Panizzi
A free Shred-it event will be April 13 in O’Hara.

Lower Valley residents can take advantage of a free Shred-it event on April 13.

Hosted by Guardian Storage in O’Hara, the event is aimed at helping residents protect themselves from identity theft.

It will be 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the facility at 1390 Old Freeport Road.

People can dispose of documents that contain private information like bank accounts, social security numbers or credit card statements.

The event is free but participants are asked to donate a school supply to benefit The Education Partnership, a nonprofit that provides help to low-income schools in Western Pennsylvania.

There is a limit of five banker’s boxes of papers to be shredded for each person during the first two hours of the event.

Anyone with more can return during the third hour.

Shredded material will be recycled.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
