North Bergen residents are invited to have personal confidential and/or sensitive documents shredded for free from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017 in Braddock Park.
Identity theft continues to top the Federal Trade Commission’s national ranking of consumer complaints. Approximately 15 million U.S. residents have their identities used fraudulently each year. Properly disposing of personal documents is a necessary step in safeguarding and protecting your personal information and credit, and preventing identity theft.
Documents will be commercially shredded safely, privately, and properly by trained, licensed, and bonded document destruction specialists. The shredding is provided by the Hudson County Improvement Authority and will take place in the parking lot near the 79th Street entrance of Braddock Park. Please remove large binder clips (staples and paper clips are okay) and limit your documents to no more than 40 lbs. Residents only; no businesses.
