In an effort to protect residents from identity theft and provide a free public service, the City will host a Document Shredding/Identity Theft Protection and e-waste event on Saturday, May 19.
The City is giving community members an opportunity to have their sensitive records securely destroyed from 9 a.m. to noon in Soka University parking lot A at 1 University Drive.
Identity theft is one of the fastest-growing crimes in the nation, and shredding documents with personal or financial information can be an effective measure of prevention.
Residents and businesses can bring standard-file boxes of paper records - canceled checks, pay stubs, credit card statements and more - that will be shredded on-site for free. The boxes of pages can contain staples and paper clips but must be free of notebooks or other bindings. Staff will also be on hand to answer questions and provide information about identity theft. There is a limit of 10 boxes per household or business.
Along with having their documents shred, residents can recycle electronic waste such as old cell phones, computers, monitors, printers, scanners, VCR/DVD players, TVs, microwaves and other small appliances free of charge in the Soka parking lot with e-Recycling of California. Large appliances, oils, solvents, tires and other household hazardous waste will not be accepted.
WHEN: MAY 19TH
WHERE: Soka University, Parking Lot A.
TIME: 9am - noon
