The rise in cases of identity theft has made the public more aware of the dangers associated with disposing of personal papers containing identifying information such as account numbers, social security numbers, medical information, or other identifying numbers and information.
Tossing bank statements, old bills, paycheck stubs, prescription bottles and similar items into the trash can provide a treasure trove of information for potential identity thieves.
Old medications can also be difficult to dispose of as can be old and worn American flags.
These may also be brought to the First Meadows banking center on Saturday for safe and respectful disposal by Union Hospital and V.F.W. Post 972. The event is free and open to the public.
Due to past overwhelming response, Data Management Shredding requests a limit of 5 bags or 5 boxes per resident.
