Friday Is "Free Shred Day" In Lexington

If you're worried about the growing problem of identity theft, Friday is "free shred day" in Lexington.

A unique opportunity for those who don't already have shredders in their home or office is being offered by the Better Business Bureau and the Kentucky Attorney General's office.

The free shredding station will be open until 2:00p.m. Friday afternoon at Lowe's in Hamburg. Anyone can box up any sensitive documents they don't need anymore and bring them out to be shredded.

As many as nine million Americans have their identity stolen each year, according to the Federal Trade Commission.

    FYI, Wow from Richmond, the documents were destroyed on the spot while you watched. Nothing was "lying around" in a truck.

    Didn't Nixon get in a heap of trouble for doing this?

    Free shredding of SENSITIVE DOCUMENTS. Yeah sure great idea there cant see anything wrong of that like oh say unsecured boxes of peoples bank account and SS numbers laying in a truck all day. My socialogy professor would have a field day with that info as all the surveys he did in his life were never secured and almost always laying in an office with an open door. People burn your own documents or make a slushy of them with a blendor and water. Dont throw them away or send them to be destroyed.
