AARP Alabama is co-sponsoring a FREE document shredding and recycling event on Friday, April 10. Montgomery-area citizens are welcome to bring up to 5 bags or boxes of documents for shredding from 7:00 AM to 1:00 PM to the shredding truck in the south parking lot of Garrett Coliseum, 1555 Federal Drive in Montgomery.
Please note that this event is for personal document shredding, and not for business or large organizations to dispose of documents. While the event is FREE, we ask that you bring a nonperishable food item to benefit the Montgomery Area Food Bank.
Shredding personal documents is an effective way to help prevent identity theft and other financial fraud. To protect yourself and your family, AARP Alabama also recommends signing up for the AARP Fraud Watch Network, a FREE service for people of all ages. Go to www.aarp.org/fraudwatchnetwork to sign up for email alerts, and to share information about scams in your area.
This public shredding and recycling event is co-sponsored by AARP Alabama, Montgomery Clean City Commission, MAX Credit Union, Legacy, Inc. Partners in Environmental Education, and Gilmore Services.
