Better Business Bureau of the Upstate & AARP® South Carolina are partnering together to host Shred Day, a national event created to promote awareness about identity theft and fraud protection.
On Friday, April 20, the Simpsonville shred event will be held at Simpsonville City Park, 100 Park Drive, Simpsonville, SC 29681. On the Greenville shred event will be held at the BBB office, 408 N. Church St., Greenville SC 29601 and Anderson Mall, 3131 North Main Street, Anderson SC 29621. All three events will take place from 9am until noon.
Individuals and small businesses can take advantage of FREE on-site document shredding, electronic recycling, and take home practical tips to prevent identity theft online and off.
Goodwill® Industries will be on site at each location to recycle computer equipment such as monitors, printers and hard drives; all of which will be wiped by Goodwill® according to Department of Defense Standards.
The maximum number of boxes per consumer or business is five. The size limit is a banker box or smaller and 13-gallon bags or smaller. The complimentary shred event is first come, first serve. There is a possibility the trucks may fill up before noon, so coming early is advised. Due to safety concerns and to ensure that we are able to serve as many vehicles as possible, we are unable to accept people on foot this year or allow people to get out of their vehicle to watch their paper shredded.
