Community Shred Days Announced

This is a press release from the Public Information Office, of the Mississippi Attorney General’s Office.

HATTIESBURG, MISS. – Mississippians who need to shred sensitive documents should pack them up, as four cities across the state will soon hold the annual Community Shred Days.

Attorney General Jim Hood announced the 12th annual event, which is an opportunity for consumers to better protect themselves against identity theft. Shred Days coincides with National Consumer Protection Week.

Participants may bring up to three bags or boxes of sensitive documents (paper only!) to be shredded at no charge. This service is first-come, first-served, and it is not open to businesses. A shredding truck will remain at each location until the truck is full or the scheduled end time, whichever occurs first.

General Hood reminds consumers that simple things, such as taking out the garbage, can expose them to identity theft. Consumers shred receipts, pre-approved credit offers, or convenience checks that haven’t been used, as well as other documents that may contain sensitive material.
