Protect Your Identity – A Free Community Shredding Event
March 28, 2015
Shredding truck available at Volunteer State Community College
Volunteer State Community College students and local residents can protect themselves from identity theft by participating in a community shredding event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, March 28, 2015, at Pickel Field House parking lot off Gap Boulevard at Volunteer State Community College.
The free event allows students, faculties and local area residents to safely destroy records that have personable identifiable information on them. The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security is sponsoring the event in coordination with MaxShred “The Touchless On-Site Shredding Company”, Volunteer State Community College Campus Police, Sumner County Sheriff’s Office and Gallatin Police Department.
A shredding truck will be parked on the lot for anyone to bring paper items that they would like to be shredded, said Captain Troy Everett, of the Identity Crimes Unit of the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security.
“Our main audience will be the students on campus and residence of the local community who may need the service to provide that extra comfort of security in today’s environment,” Everett said.
Citizens can bring a maximum of two boxes or trash bags of personal or private documents to shred. No cardboard or non-paper items will be accepted.
All vehicles must be in line by 2 p.m. in order to discard their items. For directions to the Pickel Field House parking lot off Gap Boulevard, a printable campus map is available at http://www.volstate.edu/_files/documents/Campus-Map.pdf . (Building #5 on Map)
