Over 90 consumers and businesses brought old tax returns and supportng documents, billing statements, bank statements and checks that needed to be shredded. At the end of the event the document shredding truck had over 10,000 pounds of shredded material that will be recycled.
"Identity theft prevention starts with keeping your records safe", said BBB President Andy Fisher. "Important documents shouldn't be left out where anybody who comes into your home or office can find them easily. They should be secured in a safe place. Outdated documents should be shredded. Look for the next BBB shred event in 2015."
