Protecting Identities & Environment
One of the ways you can protect yourself from identity theft and aid the environment at the same time is to safely shred and recycle your old documents. Since taking office, I have hosted several mobile shredding events in the district where constituents have safely shredded more than 80,400 pounds of paper. The 40.5 tons of material we processed equates to saving 681 trees, 281,400 gallons of fresh water and 195 cubic yards of landfill. It’s a savings of which we can all be proud.

I look forward to seeing everyone at our two mobile shredding events again this year: Saturday, May 19th from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon at Hampton High School and Saturday, October 20th from 9:00 to 11:00 am at the district office located at 4290 William Flinn Highway. As always, we ask that participants limit materials to the equivalent of two copy paper boxes or two 13-gallon kitchen trash bags. We do this to ensure that there will be room in the shredding collection truck to accept materials from everyone who attends. We do not accept books, magazines or newspapers. No metal or plastic except for paper clips and staples. For additional information, please call my district office at 412-487-6605.
