AARP Utah and Fox 13 held our four annual shredding event in Midvale and Ogden, and it was a rousing success! Unfortunately, so many of you came out to shred that Shred-it's trucks in Midvale were filled to capacity before everyone made it through the line. Therefore, they've generously offered their services to those people who came out but weren't able to shred their documents on July 14.
At AARP, we’re serious about wanting to help consumers fight identity theft! That’s why we’re teaming up once again with Fox 13 News and Shred-It to offer free shredding events, this time in both Midvale and Ogden on Saturday, July 15 from 8:00am–11:00am. This event is open to the public, regardless of age or AARP membership. Shredding sensitive financial documents and other materials that contain personal information will prevent thieves from using these data to open false accounts or lines of credit.

What a great way to help fight fraud in our state! Shred-It very generously donated four trucks for the event and provided these numbers on how we helped the environment through this shredding and recycling effort:
