Free Shred Day At Round Rock Recycling Center
Protecting your personal information will be a little easier on Saturday, March 23. Balcones Shred, a division of Balcones Resources, will host a "Shred Day" event on March 23 at the Round Rock Recycling Center at 310 Deepwood Drive from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
"When we saw the KEYE TV news report highlighting the dangers of improperly destroying documents, we knew we wanted to help," said Meredith Grossfeld, Account Manager for Balcones Shred.
"Most people do not have access to the level of secured document destruction we provide. The shredders you buy at the store just don't cut it."
The news story highlighted the fact that if you place materials in the trash or recycling bin it has the potential to end up in the hands of identity thieves or others, unless they are shredded properly.
Residents and local businesses can bring their materials to be destroyed to government-level standards. You also get the added bonus of knowing the destroyed papers are being recycled versus dumped into a landfill.
The list of items you should bring includes papers with personal information, tax returns, bank records, invoices, receipts, medical records or any paper you feel is confidential. Residents may also bring media storage devices like hard drives to be destroyed.
