Document Shredding Helps Americans Fight Identity Theft - Free Community Shred-it Event at 3 Los Angeles Locations


Los Angeles, CA, June 2, 2011 — Shred-it, the world’s leading on site document destruction company, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Identity Theft Task Force and the Los Angeles Regional Crime Stoppers are teaming up to help residents combat identity theft by hosting a free Community Shred-it Event on Saturday, June 11, 2011 from 9am to 2pm at three locations throughout Los Angeles County: Calabasas (City Hall – 100 Civic Center Way, Calabasas, CA 91302), Los Angeles (Ladera Center - 5315 W. Centinela Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90045) and Carson (The Home Depot Center – 18400 Avalon Blvd, Carson, CA 90746).

Everyone can bring all unwanted personal documents for shredding by Shred-it mobile trucks. Shred-it is providing the service free of charge on the event day, but donations will be accepted for 999 for Kids, Sheriff’s Youth Foundation, The Home Depot Center Charitable Foundation, Carson Sheriff’s Station Support Foundation and March of Dimes. This past fall the Event raised $9,000.

“Identity theft is the fastest growing form of consumer fraud in North America.” says Barry Easdale, District Operations Manager of Shred-it’s Los Angeles division. “Community members can protect themselves by regularly destroying confidential and personal documents rather than disposing of them in non-secure places such as garbage bins. The Community Shred-it Event is the perfect place to shred documents safely and securely while helping five amazing charities.”

To prevent personal identity theft, Shred-it advises to shred the following sensitive documents and old files:
• Receipts
• Checks
• Pre-approved Credit Applications / Credit Card Statements
• Outdated Tax Returns
• Envelopes & Return Address Labels
• Business Cards
