Shredding activities offer residents an easy, free way to get rid of confidential materials. Experts recommend shredding old documents with personal info; unused checks, credit card receipts, unneeded medical bills, expired ID cards, and pre-approved credit card applications. AARP Georgia and Age-Friendly Macon-Bibb are sponsoring a free Shred Fest on Saturday, December 3, 2016, 10am – 2pm.
