CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - South Carolina Federal Credit Union is hosting a free document shredding event Saturday.
The credit union is working with Shred-It Document Management to aid members and the general public in the fight against identity theft and fraud.
Event organizers say shredding personal documents prevents information leaks and security breaches, reduces storage costs and increases peace of mind.
Participants are limited to four file boxes or 100 pounds of paper per person.
The event will be held Saturday from 9 a.m to 1 p.m. at the South Carolina Federal Credit Union at 1945 Sam Rittenberg Boulevard.
Those who attend may also register to win a $100 gift card on site.
