Better Business Bureau Serving Southeast Texas will host “Shred It & Forget It” on Saturday, September 19th, 2015, in Beaumont at Parkdale Mall as part of an effort to reduce identity theft.
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, MCT Credit Union, Bill Clark Pest Control, Star Graphics, and iHeartMedia, with additional assistance from Progressive Waste Solutions, Southeast Texas Water Conditioning, Chick-fil-A–Parkdale Mall, and Lamar University’s Rotaract Club.
