Shred events are quickly gaining traction with more events popping up in cities both large and small. The number identity thefts is at an all-time high with over 15.4 million reported cases in 2016 alone. A shred event provides members of the community an outlet to securely destroy their confidential documents, and finding one near you shouldn’t be difficult.
What is a Shred Event?
A shred event is an organized, community event in which guests are encouraged to bring their confidential documents to be shredded with a mobile shredding truck that is on-site. The shred events are typically organized by a local business or government institution to promote their brand or message while simultaneously advocating data security.
The guests of the shred event can typically be charged a small fee per box of documents or it may be completely free. Many residents have stockpiled their old and unnecessary documents that contain private information, making shred events the perfect place to have them destroyed.
Guests are encouraged to bring and shred:
- Old tax forms and receipts (after 7 years)
- Bank statements
- Junk mail
- Medical bills/records
- Credit card statements/offers
- Invalidated checks
- Old pay stubs
