The most common way confidential information gets into the wrong hands is when it’s not disposed of appropriately. When you put a piece of paper in the trash, it can be difficult to know what happens to it. Every step that occurs once the trash leaves your control carries risk that someone could find your personal information and exploit that data to cause you financial loss. Shredding documents before disposal is a smart solution to safeguard personal information.
CITY OF TURLOCK “SHRED-IT” EVENT PROGRAM GUIDELINES:
· NO businesses. This event is for City of Turlock residents only.
· No more than three bags or boxes allowed.
· NO Binders
· NO Plastic
