On Oct. 19, a Better Business Burea/AARP Anderson Shred event is scheduled at the Anderson Mall (Back Entrance) Civic Center Blvd Entrance off Martin Luther King Blvd 

Individuals and small businesses can take advantage of free on-site document shredding, electronic recycling, and take home practical tips to prevent identity theft online and off. Industries will be on location to recycle computer equipment such as monitors,printers and hard drives;all of which will be wiped by Goodwill according to Department of Defense Standards.

The maximum number of boxes and plastic bags per consumer, business and vehicle is 3. Cardboard boxes will be emptied and returned to consumers. Due to safety concerns and to ensure that we are able to serve as many vehicles as possible, we are unable to accept people on foot this year or allow people to get out of their vehicle to watch their paper shredded.

The complimentary shred event is first come, first serve or until the shred trucks fill up, so coming early is advised. For more information about BBB AARP Shred Day, contact the BBB at (864)242-5052 or visit
