The Elmore County Commission is pleased to announce it is partnering with Shred-it to sponsor a free Shred-Day event Saturday, May 6, 2017, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., at the North Parking Lot of the Elmore County Judicial Complex on U.S. Highway 231 across the street from Tutwiler Prison in Wetumpka. The Shred Day will provide a secure, reliable and free means to keep unwanted and obsolete records from being accessed by the wrong people.
With the growing problem of identity theft, the Shred Day will provide citizens a secure method to safely dispose of confidential personal information. During the event, citizens (no businesses) can bring up to six banker-size boxes of documents to the Judicial Complex North Parking Lot and have them shredded on-site by a certified Shred-it employee. From drop-off to destruction, all documents will be constantly monitored and protected.
Document shredding includes secure, confidential disposal of sensitive information. Documents will be securely destroyed on-site with a mobile shredding vehicle and later recycled. There is no need to separate paper from non-paper materials or remove staples, clips or fasteners prior to shredding.
Recommended items to shred include:
Bank Statements Insurance Records
Canceled Checks Credit Card Receipts
Computer Print Outs Bills/Invoices
Financial Statements Tax Returns (more than 7 yrs. old)
