Consumer fraud and identity theft are still an epidemic in our communities. To help ongoing efforts to raise awareness and promote prevention, the Small Business Development Center is partnering with locally owned and operated Mobile Record Shredders to offer free community paper shredding services.
Community shredding events give individuals the opportunity to be proactive and have their confidential documents destroyed free of charge. (Donations will be accepted to help support such ongoing community support services offered by the SBDC.) Whether it’s small business documents you no longer need or personal papers you want to safely dispose of, Mobile Record Shredders will be on site to provide the service Saturday, March 23, 2013 from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm at the Pueblo Convention Center parking lot, located at 320 Central Main Street, in downtown Pueblo. With easy, drive up access to services the event is accommodating to all who take advantage of the Spring cleaning opportunity.
Residents and businesses are invited to bring up to five boxes of their important documents for destruction. The same secure, compliant destruction method delivered to customers by Mobile Record Shredders will be offered at the onsite shredding event.
“The Expo community event is an opportunity to bring people together while supporting our local small businesses, shares SBDC Director Caroline Trani. With the addition of the free shredding services at the Expo it allows SBDC to expand outreach to include the importance of shredding sensitive documents as one way to reduce your risk of becoming an identity theft victim. Increasing knowledge on identity theft and provide free shredding services to take action helps make our community a safer place to live.”
The free community shredding event is being held at the Southern Colorado Small Business Expo sponsored by the SBDC. The Expo features a variety of event activities at the one day event including the free document shredding services, a vendor exhibit hall with over 80 small business vendors marketing and selling their products and services, a car show, live entertainment and a Kid’s Zone with face painting and magic shows. An event the whole family will enjoy.
