I love free shredding events. I walk in lugging bags of sensitive papers and documents and walk out with nothing–except the confidence that no one will be able to extract my Social Security number or bank account number from that pulverized pile of paper.
If you have documents you’d like demolished, bring them to the Foster City Recreation Center, 650 Shell Blvd., in Foster City, Calif., on Friday, Nov. 16. Between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., Miracle Shred will shred them at no charge.
Wondering what to bring? Old credit card statements, documents containing your Social Security number, legal documents you no longer need, pay stubs (once you’ve received that year’s W2 forms), old credit card statements and voided checks.
Here is the Washington State Attorney General’s list of what to keep and what to shred.
And while you’re at it, why not toss in disappointing report cards, rejection letters from colleges and jobs and unflattering photos of yourself? How satisfying to see them all destroyed!
