Look around your house for items such as credit card offers or applications, old bank statements and other documents you no longer need, but could contain account numbers, Social Security numbers, and other personal information.
Here’s what can and cannot be shredded:
Three boxes or bags per person for individuals and businesses will be allowed. Boxes need to be 2 feet x 2 feet or smaller and bags need to be 13-gallon size or smaller.
Materials accepted for shredding include cardboard, paper, hanging file folders, paper clips, CDs, credit cards, and telephone books.
Materials NOT accepted for shredding include three-ring binders, heavy metal materials, and black garbage bags.
In addition to shredding your sensitive documents, we urge you to monitor your credit report regularly to spot any irregularities. To order your free credit report, visit annualcreditreport.com or call 1-877-322-8228
