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.
