Consumers can take advantage of FREE on-site document shredding and will take home practical tips to prevent identity theft. Consumers are allowed to bring 3 small size banker boxes or 3 plastic 13-gallon kitchen size bags of shredding. To shred your sensitive documents in a timely manner, there is no need to remove binders, binder clips, paper clips, staples, rubber bands or CDs/DVDs prior to shredding.

New this year, individuals 50 years of age or older may register to win one of four FREE $100 shredders. Visit AARP South Carolina website: Sweepstakes takes place between April 1, 9:00 a.m. EST zone and May 31, 2022, 9:00 a.m. EST zone.

“We’re honored to partner with AARP to provide this free opportunity that allows consumers to shred their unwanted documents and protect their identity,” said Vee Daniel, President and CEO of BBB of the Upstate.
