What: Community Shred Day When: July 12th, 2014 (Saturday) 10am-1pm Where: City Hall parking lot on the corner of Holly Avenue and Standard Street
To help prevent Identity Theft, the City of El Segundo will be holding a free Community Shred Day so residents can safely dispose of sensitive documents. Identity Theft affects millions of people each year at a cost of billions of dollars in losses. One way thieves are able to steal your identity is by sifting through your trash containers looking for documents that contain personal information such as birthdates, social security numbers and bank/credit card account information. Unwanted bank/credit card statements (including credit card offers), old identification cards, and tax statements are examples of documents that should be shredded if they are no longer needed. As a general rule, you should shred documents that contain any of the following: • Account numbers • Passwords • PINs • Signatures • Social Security number • Date of birth The shredding is free of charge to all El Segundo residents and is being conducted in conjunction with Consolidated Disposal Service. Everyone is encouraged to bring in your confidential documents for on-site destruction and you can watch as the paperwork is destroyed in your presence.
