In fact, over 60 million people were affected by identity theft just in 2018 alone. Identity theft has been the most common crime in America. But it does not have to happen to you.

The best part at the end of all the shredding, Amarillo crime stoppers will send all the paper to recycling instead of throwing it away. They will also have a donation station for anyone who would like to donate.

You could help conserve paper and while preventing your information from theft and off the black market.
