Chamber members and the public are invited to participate in a Community Shred & E-Waste Drop-Off Day on Tuesday, April 17, from 12:30 to 4 p.m. in the parking lot at 90 E. Wilson Bridge Road, the home of AAA Ohio Auto Club and the Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce.
Shred Day offers an opportunity for safe disposal of both sensitive documents and used electronic devices.
Identity theft has become one of the fastest growing crimes in the United States. One of the most effective ways to protect against identity theft is to shred sensitive financial and personal information.
As a "cost" for the services, donations will be accepted for Chamber-sponsored scholarships. Both cash and check donations (made payable to WACC) will be accepted.
Royal Document Destruction, a certified AAA National Association of Information Destruction (NAID®) provider and a recipient of the Business First “Fast Fifty” award., will collect sensitive documents at the event for shredding.
Businesses and residents can clear out old tax files or sensitive information, protect against identify theft, help the environment and support Chamber-sponsored scholarships by dropping off these types of documents:
Each box should be a size that a person of average strength can lift and carry. To prevent sensitive documents from spilling out and blowing away, open boxes or bags are not accepted.
