Did you know that protecting your identity is largely in your own hands?
56% of identity theft victims traced the theft to something that was stolen from their own possession. So here’s the first rule: If you don’t need it, destroy it! The BBB is here to help.
Bring up to 3 paper bags of documents (up to 50 lbs) and we’ll shred it for you - on the spot, for free! What should be shredded? Old checks, junk mail, bank and credit card statements, old tax returns and receipts, among many other things. For a records retention schedule, a list of items that should be shredded, or information about ShredFest, go to www.wisconsin.bbb.org/shredfest
