Highlights from the Fall 2016 Shred Event in Okaloosa County

On Saturday, October 1st, your Better Business Bureau® partnered with Gilmore Services and WEAR-TV to hold a free shredding event in conjunction with this year’s National Secure Your ID Day.

A Big Thank You to Gilmore Services. A total of 32,000 pounds of sensative documents from 660 vehicles were shredded.

We also would like to thank the Santa Rosa Mall for being our host location and S4P Synergy for providing volunteers to help direct traffic and assist consumers with their documents. 

Florida has ranked number one in identity theft per capita since 2009, so an event like this allows local consumers the peace of mind that their sensitive documents have been responsibly destroyed, keeping their families safe from potential theft of their identity or other financial information.
