Your old bank statements, invoices, personal correspondence and other documents may have no value to you at this point, but they can have real value to the identity thieves who may try to retrieve them.
That’s why people are often hesitant to throw personal documents into their trash or recycling carts.
But on November 12, between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM, any private resident or home-based business can bring as many as six bank-style boxes of accumulated documents to Cranberry’s Public Works building, behind the Rt. 19 Park Fire Station, for free, secure shredding and disposal.
The event, co-sponsored by Cranberry Township’s Collection Connection program and Iron Mountain – the records management company located on Freedom Road – is limited to paper-type documents. Although documents with paper clips and staples are accepted, metal three-ring binders and alligator clips are not eligible for shredding.
