Shred Day is on the way!

ImageBetter Business Bureau serving Central, Coastal, Southwest Texas and the Permian Basin invites consumers and businesses to participate in its bi-annual Shred Day events in San Antonio, Corpus Christi and Killeen this October.

Shred Day is an opportunity for local consumers and businesses to prevent identity theft and help the environment through free on-site document shredding, as well as computer and cell phone recycling.

Free shredding and recycling services will be available until noon or until the shred trucks reach capacity. Consumers can bring up to two boxes of sensitive documents per vehicle to be shred on-site. Monetary donations benefiting BBB Education Foundation will also be accepted.

In 2012, BBB Shred Day events served more than 4,800 cars and helped consumers and businesses shred over 128 tons of paper along with recycling 35,778 pounds of cardboard, computer parts and 17 boxes of old cell phones.
