Shred your worries away on Nov. 3

If you are stuck looking at a pile of papers you can’t wait to get rid of but don’t know how because of identity theft fears, then you can shred your sensitive documents at the fall 2012 paper shredding event.

The event, which is sponsored by The First Bank of Greenwich and Santaguida Sanitation, will be held on Saturday, Nov. 3 from 9 a.m. to noon in the Island Beach Parking Lot. You can enter across from Town Ferry Dock.

People are asked to shred only sensitive documents and papers. And people are responsible for removing all non-sensitive papers, file folders, envelopes, plastic bindings and covers beforehand. They can recycle these with the town’s single stream recycling.

The cost for shreddng is $1 per box with a maximum five boxes. A “box size” is considered similar to 10-ream case, 12”x18”x12”. Documents will be shredded on-site by Confidential Shredding LLC.

Shredding is considered the safest way to protect from identity theft and consumer fraud. Papers that should be shredded include financial statements, legal, estate and tax documents, medical records and Social Security information.

This is an America Recycles Day 2012 event organized by the Greenwich Recycling Advisory Board and Greenwich Green & Clean
