Event offers free on-site document shredding, recycling and ID protection advice



SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- BBB invites San Antonio consumers and businesses to participate in its seventh semi-annual Shred Day. The event provides free shredding and recycling services to take steps toward identity theft prevention and a greener planet. BBB will also offer free, safe cell phone and computer recycling as an extra benefit.



“Shred Day isn’t only about throwing out old documents,” said Carrie A. Hurt, president and CEO of BBB serving Central, Coastal, Southwest Texas and the Permian Basin. “Shred Day is about helping consumers protect their identity in a safe and secure way.”



BBB Shred Day Details



Who: All San Antonio consumers and business owners.



What: Free on-site document shredding and recycling with resources for preventing identity theft. Bring up to five boxes or bags of documents to be shredded as well as old cell phones, computers and computer parts to be recycled. Staples do not need to be removed, but documents should be taken out of binders.



When: Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Oct. 22



Where: Wonderland of the Americas Mall, 4522 Fredericksburg Rd., San Antonio



Why Shred?



In 2010, 8.1 million Americans became victims of identity theft, resulting in the loss of $37 billion, according to a report from Javelin Strategy and Research. The most common forms of identity theft are documents/benefits fraud, phone or utilities fraud and employment fraud. To help keep thieves from accessing these materials, BBB urges everyone to properly dispose of sensitive documents and electronics that contain this information.



Why Recycle?



Recycling helps create the products we use every day. According to a report published by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Americans generated approximately 243 million tons of trash and only recycled about 82 million tons in 2009. The shredding services offered on Shred Day will recycle 100 percent of the shredded materials and will help promote a greener community.

This event is brought to you by BBB serving Central, Coastal, Southwest Texas and the Permian Basin in partnership with Alamo Chapter of Credit Unions, The 50+ Club, Goodwill, Telefutura 17, Univision San Antonio, WOAI-TV and Shred-It San Antonio.
