The complimentary shred event is first come, first served or until the shred trucks fill up, so coming early is advised. Due to safety concerns, consumers will not be permitted to get out of their vehicle. Volunteers will be available onsite to remove shredding from vehicle.
The public also can take advantage of free on-site document shredding and will take home practical tips to prevent identity theft. Consumers are allowed to bring three small size banker boxes or three plastic 13-gallon kitchen size bags of documents for shredding.
To shred your sensitive documents in a timely manner, there is no need to remove binders, binder clips, paper clips, staples, rubber bands or CDs/DVDs prior to shredding.
New this year, individuals 50 years of age or older may register to win one of four $100 shredders. Visit AARP South Carolina website: aarp.cventevents.com/71G83Q. Sweepstakes takes place between April 1, 9:00 a.m. EST zone and May 31, 2022, 9:00 a.m. EST zone.
