Better Business Bureau's 'Shred Day' promotes identity theft awareness

Friday, October 19, 2012 | 5:22 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — The Better Business Bureau of Columbia is hosting its third annual "Shred Day" on Saturday.

The event will provide a safe place for the community to dispose of documents with personal information.

"We are happy to provide this to the community because the Better Business Bureau is all about protecting consumers," said Mike Odneal, the business bureau's mid-Missouri branch manager.

The free service will allow people to drop off up to three boxes or bags of anything from credit cards to bills to computer hard drives to be safely shredded in the Schnucks parking lot on Forum Boulevard from 9 a.m. to noon.

Shred-It, a document shredding service, will also be supporting the event by providing its Shred-It truck, which will be tearing through documents on site.

Supervising editor is Zach Murdock.
