BBB® & AARP® Secure Your ID "Shred Day"

Better Business Bureau® of the Upstate & AARP® South Carolina are partnering together to host a FREE Secure Your ID "Shred Day," a national event created to promote awareness about identity theft and fraud protection. 

AARP and Better Business Bureau Education Foundation will be providing educational handouts to prevent consumers and businesses from becoming victims of identity theft.  Individuals and businesses can take advantage of FREE on-site document shredding and take home practical tips to prevent identity theft online and off. 

Consumers are allowed to bring 3 banker  10" x 12" x 15" size boxes or 3 kitchen "13 gallon size" plastic bags per consumer or business. Maximum number per consumer or business is 3. Cardboard boxes will be emptied and returned to consumers. Please, DO NOT bring the following items: desktop computers, monitors, laptops, printers, or external hard drives.

In an effort to shred your sensitive documents in a timely manner, there is no need to remove binders, binder clips, paper clips, staples, rubber bands, or CDs/DVDs prior to shredding. Due to safety concerns and to ensure that they are able to serve as many vehicles as possible, they are unable to accept attendees on foot or allow consumers to get out of their vehicle to watch their paper shredded. The complimentary shred event is first come, first serve or until the shred trucks fill up.

 All donations from the event benefit Better Business Bureau Education Foundation.

Better Business Bureau Education Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit corporation that is exempt from federal income taxes under Section 501(c)3 of the internal code and eligible to receive deductible contributions.
