Each year, most households receive or collect papers that contain very private information — documents like bank and credit card statements, pay stubs or a receipt. Throwing these items in the trash is not enough to keep them safe from prying eyes. Once the trash leaves your control, it likely passes through several stages of processing on its way to a landfill or incinerator. Recycling isn’t always an effective way to destroy papers that contain your personal information. Shred them during this event, which is hosted by the Newport News Sheriff’s Office.
