Free event provides shredding for sensitive documents

The public is welcome to bring sensitive documents to a free shredding event 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Lowe's off Richmond Road. The Better Business Bureau, which is sponsoring the event with Secure Shredding Solutions, said that shredding paper documents with information about your identity is a key way to prevent identity theft.

Staples and paper clips do not need to be removed from documents that are brought. The documents will be placed in locked bins for secure destruction later at Secure Shredding Solutions' office on Palumbo Drive.
