Family Trust Federal Credit Union and Cintas Document Management will provide free document shredding for the public from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 26, at the Family Trust branch at 1690 Old York Road in York.
The event will provide on-site shredding for personal and business documents. Documents will be monitored and protected through the entire process. Staples, rubber bands, folders, paper clips, etc., do not need to be removed before shredding. Participants can watch documents being shredded from their car.
Properly destroying confidential documents can protect individuals against identity theft, which occurs to an estimated nine million Americans each year, according to the Federal Trade Commission.
Documents destroyed at the shredding event will go directly to a paper recycling plant. For more information, visit www.familytrust.org.
