Shred Day in Aliso Viejo

Date: 05.19.2012

Time: 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Location: Parking Lot A

ShreddingIn an effort to protect residents from identity theft and provide a free public service, the City of Aliso Viejo will host a Document Shredding and Identity Theft Protection event on Saturday, May 19.

The City is giving community members an opportunity to have their sensitive records securely destroyed from 9 a.m. to noon in Soka University parking lot A at 1 University Drive, Aliso Viejo.

Identity theft is one of the fastest-growing crimes in the nation, and shredding documents with personal or financial information can be an effective measure of prevention.

Aliso Viejo residents and businesses can bring standard-file boxes of paper records - canceled checks, pay stubs, credit card statements and more - that will be shredded on-site for free. The boxes of pages can contain staples and paper clips but must be free of notebooks or other bindings. Staff will also be on hand to answer questions and provide information about identity theft. There is a limit of 10 boxes per household or business.

For more information about the May 19 event, contact Aliso Viejo City Clerk Susan Ramos at 949-425-2506 or
