To prevent identity theft and fraud in the Triangle community, the Better Business Bureau serving Eastern North Carolina is hosting a spring "Secure Your ID" Day event in partnership with Coastal Credit Union. Triangle residents can take advantage of complimentary document shredding, secure destruction of computers and hard drives, electric/electronics recycling and identity protection tips.
The event is an easy drive-thru experience - volunteers collect paper and devices to be destroyed or recycled without you having to leave your vehicle. Bring up to three boxes/bags of documents that have been removed from binders and up to five electric/electronic devices. Acceptable items include computers, cell phones, tablets, TVs, printers, fax machines, DVD/CD players, microwaves and toasters. Items that are not accepted include liquids, loose batteries, thermostats, light bulbs, refrigerators, paint cans and all speakers larger than 18 inches.
