AARP in Missouri is teaming up with CU Community Credit Union and the Computer Recycling Center in Springfield, MO for a Fraud Prevention Day. There will be free paper shredding and digital recycling at the Computer Recycling Center at 528 N. Prince Lane in Springfield from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, March 28. Help protect yourself from identity theft by safely recycling sensitive information on paper or on digital media like hard drives, laptop computers or cell phones. AARP and CU Community Credit Union will have fraud prevention information on hand.
For paper shredding you do not need to remove paper clips or staples from documents. The Computer Recycling Center also recycles other types of electronics, but fees apply for some items (CRT TVs/Monitors, Microwaves and Fluorescent Bulbs)*. Join AARP, CU Community Credit Union and the Computer Recycling Center and take action to prevent fraud!
