LOWER POTTSGROVE PA – A free event for secure and private shredding of local residents’ unwanted personal documents is scheduled to be held Sunday (Oct. 22, 2023) from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., or until the shredding truck is filled, at Pottsgrove Senior High School, 1345 Kauffman Rd. It’s sponsored by Lower Pottsgrove Township and 146th District state Rep. Joe Ciresi.
Participating members of the public, and specifically residents of Ciresi’s district, may bring up to five boxes of paper per household for shredding. The district includes Limerick, Lower Pottsgrove, and West Pottsgrove townships, and Pottstown and Royersford boroughs.
The drive-through event represents an opportunity for residents to rid themselves of private forms of information they no longer need or want. Shreddable materials to be securely destroyed can include old documents, folders or correspondence.
Wiggins Shredding will perform the work on-site. Shredding may end earlier than expected if the truck is filled before the event officially ends.
And next week, license plate restoration
Some vehicle owners have license plates that are considered peeling, blistered, discolored, damaged, or hard to read. They’re invited to apply for a free license plate replacement on Oct. 26 (Thursday) from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Gerald Richards Park, 2150 Buchert Rd., Sanatoga.
Lower Pottsgrove police officers will be on hand to check plates, verify they should be replaced, and provide assistance in completing a necessary form. Those for whom new plates are granted should receive them within 1-2 weeks, or up to 8 weeks for vanity plates.
