BATAVIA, Ohio (April 22, 2015) — Don’t be a victim of identity theft; shred documents you don’t need that contain sensitive information, like your Social Security number, date of birth, or bank account numbers. The Clermont County Records Center, in cooperation with Shred-It, will hold a free community shred day 8 a.m.-noon on Saturday, May 16. It will be held in the parking lot of the Clermont County Family Support Center, 2400 Clermont Center Drive, Batavia.

“Local residents and businesses are invited to bring expired personal or business records that contain confidential information and watch as their documents are securely shredded,” said Michelle Snyder, manager of the Clermont County Records Center.  “We are partnering with Shred-It for this event to bring awareness to the widespread issue of fraud and identity theft, and provide the community with a way to securely dispose of their information.”

The Clermont County Records Center provides offsite storage and records management to over 37 county offices and agencies, storing thousands of boxes of information each year and shredding thousands of expired records.  “We ensure that all sensitive information produced by County offices is stored securely and destroyed when expired,” said Snyder.
