Free paper shredding event scheduled in Plum

Brian C. Rittmeyer

State Sen. Jim Brewster is hosting a free shredding event in Plum.

It will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 27, at the Plum Community Center, 499 Center-New Texas Road.

The event, held in partnership with the Plum Library and the Plum Community Center, is for individuals only. There will be a three box limit per car.

Document shredding will occur onsite. The shredded paper will be recycled.

Individuals may bring all documents that are no longer needed containing personal information such as Social Security, credit card and bank account numbers. Other documents that can be shredded include credit card statements and applications, bank statements, cancelled checks, income tax forms, insurance records and medical, retirement and pension fund information.

Only paper will be accepted. Do not bring binders, binder clips or books.

Donations of non-perishable food items will be accepted for the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. Those donating are asked not to give glass items. A donation is not required to participate in the shredding event.

For more information, contact Brewster’s office at 412-664-5200.

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.
