One Nevada Credit Union's Fall Shred Day returns on October 20. The free community shred event will take place on Thursday, October 20, from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the One Nevada Durango Branch located at 7703 N El Capitan Way, Ste 190 Las Vegas, NV 89143.
Identity theft is a problem in Nevada, and it can happen to anyone. One of the easiest ways to reduce your risk is to use a secure paper shredder. Assured Document Destruction will be onsite to safely and properly dispose of unwanted documents. Up to three boxes filled with acceptable recyclable items are allowed per car. Electronics, ink cartridges, and cardboard will not be accepted.
To reduce the risk of identity theft, the most important documents to shred are bank statements and ATM receipts, expired ID cards, documents containing your social security number and credit information, investment documents, old pay stubs, voided checks, and even old plane tickets. Essentially you should shred anything that contains personal information that identity thieves could use. When in doubt, shred it.
The One Nevada shred event is free to the public, but cash contributions and non-perishable food donations will be accepted. Three Square Food Bank will have an information booth at the event and be on-site collecting donations to help in their mission.
