Free paper-shredding event set


By John North



DAYTON — It’s the time of year when we tackle spring cleaning at home and in the office. As you’re cleaning out those old files and going through the stacks of paperwork, make plans to join Better Business Bureau serving Dayton/Miami Valley for free shredding and identity theft tips at Secure Your ID Day, at Routsong Funeral Home Inc., 81 N. Main St., Centerville, April 27, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. (dependent on truck capacity)

This popular event is a great way to dispose of your files, credit card statements, old checks, IRS tax returns, etc., safely. You can bring up to five boxes or bags of documents to be shredded free at the event. (If you have more than five boxes, you’re welcome to go through the line again.) The first 350 cars in line are guaranteed shredding. Others will have materials shredded dependent on the trucks’ capacity. Once trucks meet capacity, the event will end, and cars may be directed to alternative shredding options.

Documents to be shredded should be removed from binders, but staples and paper clips are OK to be shredded. Electronics and batteries cannot be included in material to be shredded. Shredded documents will be recycled. Invite your family and friends to take advantage of this free shredding event.

BBB staff will be on hand to provide identity theft advice and tips.
