"Shred It & Forget It"

April 11, 2014


Better Business Bureau Serving Southeast Texas will host ”Shred It & Forget It” on Saturday, April 12 at Central Mall as part of an effort to reduce identity theft.  Since July 2006, 15 events have successfully been held in Southeast Texas.  

Shred-It will provide mobile shredding trucks for the one-day event.  The BBB invites consumers to bring documents to be shredded for FREE,such as credit card statements, old checks, I.R.S. tax returns, and anything that lists personal information.  Bring up to five (5) boxes per vehicle.  (Box size is limited to a standard banker’s box, approximately 10 x 12 x 15 inches.)  

The BBB stresses the importance to shred your confidential documents; when improperly disposed of, they can lead to identity theft. “Shred It and Forget It” is brought to you by Shred-It, Bill Clark Pest Control, MCT Credit Union, and Clear Channel Radio.  The event will be held at the mall parking lot in front of JC Penney between 10am and 1pm. For more information, contact Debbie Wylde-Bridgeman at 409/835-5951, Ext. 117 or debbiebridgeman@bbbsetexas.org.
