Back by popular demand for the 12th year, AARP Nebraska and Shred-It will host a free community shredding day in Omaha on Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017 at The Center Mall on 42nd and Center Sts.
Every two seconds, someone’s identity is stolen. People can avoid becoming victims of identity theft by shredding confidential documents with personal information, such as cancelled checks, credit card offers, old bank and financial statements and medical bills.
The convenient drive-through shredding session will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the east end of the top level of The Center Mall’s parking lot. People should enter the parking lot at 40th & Center Sts. Mobile shredders will be on site and unloading assistance will be provided. For more information, call the AARP Nebraska Information Center at (402) 398-9568.
The free shredding service conducted by trained Shred-It staff is offered to residents who bring their household documents – no businesses please.
