Township Offers Free Document Shredding

Residents have the opportunity to dispose of sensitive documents and data storage materials at Super Saturday events.

City and township residents can drop off items and receive information about identity theft at the Public Works Garage, 8190 McEwen Rd. Documents will be securely shredded, said Mike Wanamaker, Public Works director.

A photo ID may be required. Up to 12 grocery-size bags will be accepted. Materials may include paper, tapes, credit cards, CDs and microfilm.

As always, a sheriff's deputy from the Washington Township Substation will answer questions about identity theft. Law enforcement experts recommend that people shred important documents such as invoices, bank statements, canceled checks, medical records and credit card receipts.
