Saturday, September 27
9am - noon
The Federal Trade Commission estimates that as many as 10 million Americans have their identities stolen each year. Identity theft starts with the misuse of your personal identifying information. Documents such as old bank statements, legal documents, medical records, tax records, receipts/invoices, utility bills, canceled checks and statements containing credit card numbers, birth dates, signatures, passwords and pin numbers are all items that should be shredded to avoid identity theft. For more information on how to protect your identity, visit the Federal Trade Commission website at www.consumer.ftc.gov
Valley Green Shredding will provide an on-site mobile shred unit to securely and confidentially shred residential documents for free. Residents are asked to limit their confidential documents to 5 standard size boxes. All 3 ring binders and binder clips should be removed. Paper clips, staples, spiral bound notebooks are all acceptable.
