Attorney General Beau Biden announced Sept. 10 that his consumer protection unit is sponsoring consumer shredding events statewide this month.
The shredding event will help consumers guard against identity theft by disposing documents containing sensitive identifying information. At each event, free on-site document shredding will be offered and consumer protection staff will provide information and answer questions about consumer frauds and scams. Consumers may bring up to three file-sized boxes of documents, which may contain paper file folders and paperclips.
Shredding events will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the following dates and locations:
Sept. 21, Lowe's/BJ's parking lot, Peninsula Crossing Shopping Center, Route 113, Millsboro.
Sept. 28, DelDOT administration building parking lot, 800 Bay Road, just south of the Route 13-113 split, Dover.
Oct. 5, Williams Penn High School parking lot, 713 E. Basin Road, New Castle.
