COMMUNITY SHRED DAYS ANNOUNCED
Mississippians who need to shred sensitive documents should pack them up, as three cities across the state will soon hold three Community Shred Days.
Attorney General Jim Hood announced three community shred days, which is an opportunity for consumers to better protect themselves against identity theft.
The events will be held on October 21 in Greenville, October 28 in Jackson and on October 30 in Horn Lake.
Participants may bring up to three bags or boxes of sensitive documents (paper only!) to be shredded at no charge. This service is first-come, first-served, and it is not open to businesses. A shredding truck will remain at each location until the truck is full or the scheduled end time, whichever occurs first.
