Let me tell you this, I have this habit of gathering so much stuff that needs to be shredded.  I'm talking about documents that don't need to be chunked in the trash.  My personal shredder died and I haven't bought another.  However, I know that each year the Better Business Bureau will host this special and amazing day, where they will shred your documents for free.  Yes! Free!

It's important to make sure you shred those documents that have sensitive information on them.  You don't want that information getting in the wrong hands.  Once your identity is stolen, you will go through a nightmare trying to get it all cleaned up.

“Protect yourself by shredding documents with personal information; if they get into the trash, the information could be stolen and used, compromising your good name,” said Janna Kiehl, BBB CEO. Now is the time to clean out files, dust off the shred box and bring your papers to shred at no charge.

They make it easy on you, just drive up and drop off.  They asked you to stay in your car, and volunteers will take your items to shred.  The shredding will be done on-site.

You can bring up to 4 bags or boxes of items that need to be shredded.

 

The last time I had my documents shredded I had 3 huge garbage bags full of items.  I was so thankful to the BBB for providing this opportunity.

Make sure your identity is secured and take advantage of this free shredding day.
