One Nevada Credit Union’s free community shred event will take place on Friday, September 30, from 10 a.m. –2 p.m. at 1296 E Plumb Lane in the Costco shopping center.
Identity theft is a problem in Nevada, and it can happen to anyone. One of the easiest ways to reduce your risk is to use a secure paper shredder. American Document Destruction will be onsite to safely and properly dispose of unwanted documents. Up to three boxes filled with acceptable recyclable items are allowed per car. Electronics, ink cartridges, and cardboard will not be accepted.
To reduce the risk of identity theft, the most important documents to shred are bank statements and ATM receipts, expired ID cards, documents containing your social security number and credit information, investment documents, old pay stubs, voided checks, and even old plane tickets. Essentially you should shred anything that contains personal information that identity thieves could use. When in doubt, shred it.
The One Nevada shred event is free to the public, but cash contributions and pet supply donations will be accepted. SPCA of Northern Nevada will have an information booth at the event and be on-site collecting donations to help in their mission.
