Your BBB staff will be on hand to provide identity theft advice and tips. It’s the perfect opportunity to get rid of your files at work and home, such as credit card statements, old checks, IRS tax returns among other items.

You don’t even have to get out of your car - just drive through and our BBB staff will unload your vehicle and you can watch it go right to the Confidential Material Destruction shredding trucks. Documents to be shredded should be removed from binders, but staples, paper clips, CDs and floppy discs are okay to be shredded.
