Shred away ID theft worries

scrap document paper for recycle

Better Business Bureau® of the Upstate & AARP® South Carolina are partnering together to host Secure Your ID “Shred Day.”

The national, semi-annual identity theft document shredding event designed to educate and deter consumers and small businesses from becoming victims of identity theft. The free event features on-site shredding, electronic recycling, plus tips to protect identity.

Goodwill will also be on-site to accept old desktop computers, laptops, monitors and printers. Before reselling, hard drives are wiped clean to the standards of the US Department of Defense.

The maximum number of boxes and plastic bags per consumer, business and vehicle is three. Cardboard boxes will be emptied and returned to consumers. 

The complimentary shred event is first come, first serve or until the shred trucks fill up, so coming early is advised.
