    Posted on May 12th, 2011 admin No comments

    Boca Raton, FL – On Saturday April 23, 2011, the Boca Raton Police Services Department partnered with MicroShred Corporation for a free document shredding event to help prevent identity theft. In the end, more than eight tons of material was brought by residents to the massive shredder. Aside from protecting citizens against fraud, 25.2 cubic yards of potential waste was saved from a landfill, the equivalent of 142 trees.

    From the Boca Raton Police Services Department:

    Boca Raton Police and MicroShred team up in Boca Raton, FL – On Saturday April 23, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., the Boca Raton Police Services Department is partnering with MicroShred Corporation to host a free document shredding event to help prevent identity theft. The event will be held at the Town Center Mall, 6000 West Glades Road, in the northwest corner near Sears.

    We encourage you to take a key step in identity protection by shredding and properly disposing all sensitive paper documents. “As identity theft continues to be a growing problem nationwide, it is more important than ever for individuals to properly destroy documents that contain personal information by methods such as shredding,” said Officer Kolnick of the Crime Prevention Unit.

    Microshred will have document shredding trucks on site and each participant will be given a Certificate of Destruction after all their documents have been shredded. The event is open to all residents of Boca Raton, with a maximum of five bankers sized boxes per household allowed to be shredded.
