One of the best ways to prevent identity theft is to shred your unwanted important papers in a cross-cut shredder. This Saturday, October 15, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., the Revere Adult Center and the Revere Consumer Affairs Office are hosting “Shred-It Saturday” in the City Hall parking lot (281 Broadway). The event is being sponsored and underwritten by Rockland Trust Bank.
Residents are invited to bring up to two paper bags or two small boxes of papers for shredding by New England Shredding Services. Recommended materials include tax records, bank statements, credit card statements and financial records. Please note: the IRS and Massachusetts Department of Revenue require you keep tax returns for three years from the filing date.
The event is rain or shine and will end if the truck fills before noon. Residents with questions or who require additional information can contact the Revere Consumer Affairs Office at email@example.com.
