Shredding sensitive documents is one way to reduce your risk of becoming an identity theft victim. Attend one of these free community shred events to keep your personal information out of the hands of crooks.
To confirm an event or receive additional information, please contact the organizations in the listing. The AGO is not sponsoring or organizing any shred events at this time, although we continue to post public shredding events organized by others on this web site when we hear of them or are contacted by an agency hosting an event.
