Join BBB Serving Western VA at the Salem Civic Center on April 24, 2021, from 8 AM - 11 AM for our free community service event to shred sensitive information to help protect consumers & businesses in our community from the growing threat of identity theft. Bring up to 3 boxes of sensitive documents to be properly shredded and destroyed using industrial shredders supplied by Commonwealth Document Management. BBB staff members also attend each event to provide advice and tips for identity theft protection.
To prevent the spread of COVID-19, our staff will be wearing masks. If needed, we are happy to offer a contactless option for shredding your sensitive information. Please unlock your vehicle's trunk and our staff will help unload up to 3 boxes of documents.
What To Shred:
Here are three types of personal documents you might consider shredding:
- Personal documents. Be cautious of what documents contain such information as your Social Security number, birthday, banking information, and pin numbers or passwords.
- Check your credit cards. Any document having to do with current or expired credit cards can be sensitive. Think of receipts, credit offers and applications, bank statements, and other similar documents.
- Be prepared for tax season. Be mindful of documents you may need for tax reasons. Shred Day is for documents and materials that are no longer necessary.
The BBB thanks its partners for their support of the 2021 Secure Your ID Day. They include Commonwealth Document Management and the Salem Civic Center
