AARP NY is sponsoring free shred events as part of “Operation: Stop Scams,” a series of free shredding events around the state, from Upstate to Long Island. From April to June, we are helping people fight back against fraud and help protect them from identity theft by shredding truckloads of sensitive personal documents.
In 2017, 16.7 million Americans were the victims of identity theft- that is an 8% increase since 2016. That is why AARP and BECU invite you to bring old documents containing your personal information to our mobile shredding trucks for free disposal.
Every two seconds someone’s identity is stolen. But you can take steps to protect yourself. Join us at events across Ohio this spring to fight back against fraud!

Just after filing taxes is a good time to shred old documents to keep them from falling into the hands of identity thieves. More than 3,600 Alabamians filed complaints of identity theft to the Federal Trade Commission in 2017.
