ALBANY, GA (WALB) - This Saturday January 16th Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful is hosting a FREE Paper/Document Shredding event in the Civic Centers Back Parking lot from 9:00AM until 1:00PM.
"We want to get the word out to our citizens," said Julia W. Bowles, Executive Director of Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful. "We have received numerous requests to host more than the one event that is offered in conjunction with our electronic collection event every September. This will be a standalone event, we will just be shredding paper."
It is important that paper documents that are no longer needed may contain vital information, like dates of birth and Social Security numbers, which criminal can use to steal you identity, and set up false identities that can be used to open fraudulent bank accounts.
