Better Business Bureau holds event for safe disposal of documents

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Better Business Bureau of Upstate New York, Tops, AT&T and Shred-It will hold the “Secure Your ID Day” on Saturday, October 8th.

The event will provide free paper shredding for anyone who would like to bring their old documents for safe onsite destruction.

The BBB aims to prevent identity fraud and promote best practices for identity theft protection. In 2015, 13.1 million Americans became victims of identity fraud. Misplacing a personal document is often all it takes for someone to steal your identity, according to the BBB. The best way to prevent that is to responsibly get rid of old documents, they say.

The event will be held at Tops Friendly Markets at 3865 Union Road in Buffalo from 10:00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
