Community shredding services help protect individuals from Identity Theft
Identity theft and corporate fraud are on the rise across Ireland, threatening not only the business world but consumers and local communities as well. In an effort to raise awareness about identity theft and promote fraud prevention, Shred-it organises Community Shred-it events, offering free paper shredding services to the general public.
Held in easily accessible locations, from police stations to shopping centre car parks, Shred-it’s community shredding events provide local residents and businesses with the opportunity to have their confidential documents destroyed free of charge.
At a designated time, our mobile shredding trucks arrive at the location of the community shredding event, upon which local residents are welcome to bring along their important confidential documents for us to destroy, there and then. Whatever you want to shred, be it personal documents and old bank statements or outdated business accounts and invoices, our state-of-the-art shredders can do the job quickly and securely. Bringing local communities together, our events aim to increase awareness about the importance of document destruction by highlighting the issue of information security.
So what’s in it for us?
The answer is simple. Community Shred-it events raise awareness about the serious issue of identity theft, and make our communities safer places to live. Generating goodwill with potential new customers and strengthening existing customer relationships at these public shredding events also makes good business sense.
Community members should contact their local Shred-it branch for more information at 1800 747 333 (ROI) or 0800 028 1164 (NI).
