Shredding confidential information to protect personal information and sensitive data is one step toward protecting yourself from identity theft, states ReWorks, adding it is a good way to keep that paper out of the waste stream and local landfills. It is recommended that anything that has personal information like your name, address, phone number, social security number, or bank account information should be shredded.
The free event is for Summit County residents and businesses only. There is a limit of 10 file boxes or shopping bags per vehicle. Complete event details may be found at summitreworks.com/shredding.
The BCF Sports Complex is located at 841 Wooster Road West, in Barberton. Residents must enter from Wooster Road West only. ReWorks will hold one more on-site document shredding event Oct. 1 in Akron.
