How to Get Organized Before Sunmark's Shred Day May 18
Some of the easiest targets for identity thieves are home trash bins. When you put a piece of paper in the trash it can be difficult to know what happens to it. It is likely that your trash passes through several stages on its way to a landfill and every step that occurs once the trash leaves your control, has risk that someone will find personal information they can use to cause you harm. One way to safeguard personal information is to shred it before it goes into the trash. Join us Saturday, May 18, from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm, for our document shredding day at our Latham branch located at 1187 Troy Schenectady Road. This is a great opportunity to safely destroy any personal information, such as old files and financial records, at no cost to you.
What should you shred?
Tax information & returns
Investment records & statements
Bank statements & canceled checks
