VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — AAA Tidewater Virginia is looking to help you protect your identity while helping the environment this month.
Tidewater AAA is hosting a Shred-a-Thon at two different locations this month, where people can bring up to five boxes of documents they want to be shredded.
The shredded documents will be turned into recyclable paper that would otherwise take up space at a landfill.
“We want to help protect and reduce the chances of people becoming victims of identity theft by offering this free opportunity to shred sensitive documents before they end up in the wrong hands,” said Georjeane Blumling, AAA Tidewater’s spokesperson.
The events are free and open to the public, and will held on the following days:
- March 12: AAA Virginia Beach branch between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
- March 26: AAA Newport News branch between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
