Be Safe and Secure: Shred It


Reduce your risk of identity theft by bringing documents with personal information to a Shred-a-thon near you.

Free shredding events are scheduled April 16 in Gilford, April 23 in Littleton and Concord, and April 30 in Dover and Manchester. Shredding trucks will be onsite from 9 a.m. to noon at select Bank of New Hampshire locations.

The events are free, and everyone is invited; you do not have to be an AARP member or Bank of New Hampshire customer to participate. Each person may bring up to three bags or boxes of documents, including bank statements, canceled checks, credit card offers and receipts. Binder clips must be removed, but paper clips and staples may remain. Do not bring magazines, newspapers or other bulky publications that do not contain personal information.
