An electronics recycling, shredding and used book drive event is being sponsored by a team of organizations including AARP, Carmel Utilities, Carmel Police Department, Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana, Carmel Green Teens, Technology Recyclers, and Wish-TV. This event will be held on Saturday April 25th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Creekside Middle School parking lot at the SE corner of W. 126th and Shelborne Road (Note this is a new location)
Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes today and most identity information is still obtained through hard copy paper sources. Shredding significantly reduces your risk when disposing of confidential information. It is recommended that you shred any documents that include a signature, account number, social security number, medical or legal information.
The on-site shredding is sponsored by Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana. A donation is requested of $5 per bankers sized box or equivalent. All proceeds benefit Crime Stoppers.
