We continue to work with our partners at Iron Mountain to help you shred all of your old unwanted documents to keep you safe from identity theft. Even with technology, one of the most common ways thieves get your information is by going through your trash and finding something that has your name, address and account numbers or social security number. That is why it is so important to shred all of those kinds of documents.

Here's how it works:

Bring all of your old documents.

Do not bring binders, computers discs, videotapes, CDs, or DVDs. We will only be shredding paper!

When you arrive at the mall, leave your stuff in your car and come get in line. When you get to the front of the line, we have volunteers who will go with you to your car, load your documents into huge bins, and then you'll follow them to one of the many Iron Mountain shredding trucks.

There, you'll get to watch your material get shredded right in front of your eyes, so you'll know it's being disposed of properly.

Then you can join us under the NBC10 tent for freebies and more information about protecting yourself from identity theft.

We ask that no businesses come out, because we want to serve as many consumers as possible.
