CHADDS FORD — Rep. Steve Barrar (R-Chester/Delaware) is hosting a shredding and drug take-back event on Saturday, Oct. 1, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at his district office, One Beaver Valley Road, Chadds Ford. The office is located at the intersection of Route 202 and Naamans Creek Road.

“This is the perfect time to visit the office for anyone who might have difficulty coming during normal business hours,” Barrar said. “During this time, my staff will also be able to assist with state-related issues, and I look forward to discussing the topics that interest residents.”

The event, which will feature an onsite industrial paper shredder, will provide the opportunity for households of the 160th District to shred up to three packing boxes of materials. The boxes will be returned to residents. 

Only paper, not cardboard, will be accepted. Staples and paper clips need not be removed. All shredding takes place onsite, and the event will be held rain or shine.

Residents are also invited to drop off their prescriptions, over-the-counter drugs and medicines for safe disposal. By law, needles and epi-pens will not be accepted.

“As the Commonwealth continues to battle the heroin epidemic, it is imperative that unused medications are not accessible. Addiction commonly begins with prescription drugs and transitions to heroin, so this drug take-back day could prevent another life lost,” Barrar said.

For more information about the event, please call Barrar’s district office at (610) 358-5925
