BBB hosting two free shredding events April 24, 26

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

The Better Business Bureau of Charlotte is offering two free shredding events next week.

It's time to clean out your desks, filing cabinets, and storage closets and have your old files securely shredded for free on April 24 and April 26.
 
"Shredding is the easiest way to prevent identity theft," said BBB President Tom Bartholomy in a news release. "When you have financial documents in your home, you make it easy for a friend, family member or roommate to copy down your credit card number, social security number or bank account number."

The BBB will be offering free shredding to individuals and small businesses at two events on April 24 and April 26 in Charlotte:

•    April 24, 2014 - Ballantyne Corporate Park's Earth Day Celebration, from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., located in the parking lot near the intersection of Brixham Hill Road and Ballantyne Corporate Place. Electronic recycling of computer hard drives will also be available. Limit four large bags or boxes of documents per vehicle.

•    April 26, 2014 - BBB's nationwide "Secure Your ID" Day from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. at two locations:
           1. J.M. Robinson Middle School, located at 5925 Ballantyne Commons Parkway, Charlotte, N.C. 28277

           2. Shred-It parking lot, located at 3421 Axar Road, Charlotte, N.C. 28208.

Limit four large bags or boxes per car. These shredding events will be held rain or shine.

The BBB is being assisting in the event by the Bissell Companies, Shred-It, CMPD and the N.C. Consumer Fraud Task Force.
