County shred day set for Saturday

Published 4:30am Friday, April 12, 2013

Identity theft is a growing problem nationwide, and sensitive documents are a prime avenue for criminals to steal personal information.
Saturday the Elmore County Commission will sponsor a countywide shredding event to give residents a chance to safely dispose of sensitive paperwork. Through a partnership with Cintas, an industrial shredding machine will be at the north parking lot of the Elmore County Judicial Complex on U.S. Highway 231 in Wetumpka.
“This will give citizens a free opportunity to bring their confidential information and have it safely and securely destroyed,” County Administrator Lynda Feaga said.
The event from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. will be free of charge to citizens. The commission is paying Cintas $175 per hour to provide the service.
Residents are asked to limit their documents to six boxes each. They’ll be able to watch as the documents are destroyed, Feaga said.
