BRIARCLIFF, N.Y. - The county is bringing its mobile shredder back to Briarcliff in an effort to protect residents from identity theft.
The shredder will be available to help residents destroy unwanted personal papers and documents with identifying information. The shredder will be set up at 1111 Pleasantville Road on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Each resident can bring up to four file boxes that are free of clips, bindings, folders and files. Paper generated by businesses, schools, institutions, government or municipal offices won't be accepted.
Old documents and bills put people at risk of identity thieves. One of the best ways to minimize the risk of identity theft is to shred all documents no longer in use that have personal identifying information such as name, address, phone number, credit card number or Social Security number.
