Posted on Monday, October 3, 2016

Shredding is a quick and easy way to dispose of personal and financial information in a manner that prevents identity thieves from obtaining names, addresses, account numbers, and other identifying information that can be used to commit fraud.The community is invited to bring any unwanted papers, credit cards, or other sensitive documents to be securely destroyed and recycled, free of charge.

Please note: There is a five box limit per vehicle!

During our Shred Day, a mobile shredder will be provided in the rear parking lot of the 3Rivers Northland Campus (1605 Northland Blvd., just off of Lima Road, across from Crazy Pinz.)

This is a drive-up service in which documents are loaded directly into the Federal Records Management & Shredding mobile shredding truck for immediate destruction. All documents are shredded on-site and then recycled. Federal Records Management & Shredding is NAID AAA Certified and is a locally owned and operated company in Fort Wayne.

Fun fact: Last year, 3Rivers' Community Shred Days destroyed over 25 tons of sensitive documents!

We hope to see you on October 7!
