‘Secure Your ID’ Day Sponsored by      

Better Business Bureau of Eastern Michigan   



Southfield, MI – Better Business Bureau (BBB) Serving Detroit & Eastern Michigan is once again partnering with Shred-it to host ‘Secure Your ID’ Day on May 13, 2017 at a new location - Southfield High School.  Historically, BBB has accepted electronics to be recycled but due to a last minute cancellation of our electronics recycling partner BBB is UNABLE to accept electronics at this event. 

Over half of identity theft victims can trace the theft to something that was stolen from their possession, so consumers are urged to attend this community shred event as an important step in protecting their privacy. Document shredding is one of the most effective ways to dispose of sensitive records, data, documents and information. However, it is important to know how long to keep certain documents, so prior to attending the event or shredding at home, consumers should consult this records retention schedule for more information.

Details for this event:
