TUCKAHOE, N.Y. – Eastchester residents worried about becoming the victims of identity theft will have the opportunity to safely destroy unwanted documents when the Westchester County mobile shredder comes to Tuckahoe on Saturday.

From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, the mobile shredder will be stationed at the Fisher Avenue parking lot, allowing residents the opportunity to safely destroy documents that contain personal information.

Old documents and bills offer identity thieves the information needed to commit fraud. One of the best ways to minimize the risk of identity theft is to shred documents that are no longer in use that may contain information such as addresses, phone numbers, credit card information or social security numbers.

Forms such as pre-approved credit card applications, old credit card bills, receipts, bank statements and tax returns that contain identifying information should be shredded on Saturday.

Paper generated by businesses, schools, institutions, government or municipal offices will not be accepted. County staff will inspect all paper being shredded and will reject anything labeled as commercial or institutional.

Residents may bring a maximum of four boxes of documents to the shredder. All paper must be free of clips, bindings, folders and files. No hardcover or bound ledger books will be allowed.
