The Better Business Bureau will offer free on sight document shredding on Saturday, October 19 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The service will be at 3501 Soncy Road in the Med Center parking lot.

Shredding old documents with personal information will help prevent identity theft. 

You will be able to dispose of old credit card offers, anything with Social Security information, bank or credit card account numbers. 

“One of the simplest ways you can protect yourself is by shredding documents with personal information; if they get into the trash, the information could be stolen and used, compromising your good name,” said Janna Kiehl, BBB CEO.
