Recycling event at Harry S Truman Elementary School Nov. 16

State Rep. Jeanne McNeill, D-133rd, will join Fountain Hill and Salisbury Township in sponsoring a free shredding and electronics recycling event 9 a.m. to noon Nov. 16 in the parking lot of Harry S Truman Elementary School, 1400 Gaskill St., Salisbury Township.

“Shredding is a great way to ensure your personal and financial documents are safely and securely disposed of to prevent identity fraud,” McNeill said. “Plus, this year’s event will be a perfect opportunity to safely get rid of your old, unwanted electronics to help ensure harmful chemicals don’t pollute our environment.”
