Public invited to shred documents in Macon April 18

The Better Business Bureau is making it a little easier for people to protect their identity.

The community is invited to have sensitive paper documents shredded 10 a.m.-noon April 18 at Wal-Mart, 5955 Zebulon Road, according to a news release from the Better Business Bureau of Central Georgia and the Central Savannah River Area.

“Properly destroying documents that carry information you don’t want getting into the hands of crooks is an important first step to fighting identity theft, but it doesn’t end there,” said President/CEO Kelvin Collins.

People can bring up to three boxes or bags of documents to be shredded, and they can take home tips and resources needed for identity protection. Documents to be shredded should be removed from binders, but staples and paper clips are permitted.
