Identity theft is a common circumstance with the risk of putting important documents in recycling or in the garbage.

To help avoid this result, the Prince George Crime Stoppers Society will be back in the community this Saturday (Sept. 21) to host its bi-annual Shred-It event where local residents, by a minimum $5 donation, can shred any papers containing personal information they don’t need to keep.

The Shred-It Mobile Shredding Services vehicle will be parked in the CN Centre lot from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., ready to help quickly, responsibly, and safely shred your personal or important papers.

The event is not meant for business owners.

Donations will go towards Prince George Crime Stoppers and the not-for-profit’s continuous efforts in aiding police by providing tips from the public.

If you’re hungry while watching your papers get shredded, Mr. Mikes will be on-site with a burger barbecue starting at 11 a.m., also by donation.

More information is available on the Prince George Crime Stoppers website.

Shred-It events take place every Fall and Spring in the city.
