A cool brisk morning didn’t stop area residents from showing up for the semi-annual Secure Your ID Day shred event in Nampa on Oct. 19.
“We’re seeing a good number of people dropping of two to three bags of materials they collected over the past months,” says Dale Dixon, CEO for Better Business Bureau serving the Snake River Region. “People are taking serious the fact that identity theft can happen.”
The event at College of Western Idaho Micron Center saw over 320 cars and trucks bringing in 16,080 tons of paper to be shredded on site by Cintas Document Management mobile trucks.
“We’re extremely grateful for the sponsors of this event, and the time of the volunteers,” Dixon says.
This year’s event was sponsored by Les Bois Credit Union, Right Now! Heating and Air Conditioning, and Secure Data Sanitization.
