Norcross, GA (PRWEB) September 17, 2014
Recall Holdings Limited (ASX: REC), a global leader in information management, will again partner with CBS Atlanta to present the 2014 “Great Shredder Event” on Saturday, September 20, 2014, from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville, Ga., home of the Gwinnett Braves.
Residents and small businesses are invited to bring paper documents containing sensitive information to be securely shredded and transported for final disposal. This process includes a closed-loop chain of custody methodology that is significantly more secure than shredding devices that are available to consumers and small businesses.
“Identity fraud is a growing consumer epidemic, with an estimated 13 million Americans falling victim in 2013. Very often, identity thieves get all the information they need from discarded documents that should be destroyed,” said Tim McBride, Vice President and General Manager for Secure Destruction Services, Recall North America. “Secure destruction and disposal of personal documents is simply a non-negotiable step to protect your identity, finances and credit score.”
Suggested items for secure destruction at the “Great Shredder Event” include:
- Any bill, bank statement or credit card offer
- Pay stubs, medical records and medical bills more than a year old
- Home purchase, sale or improvement documents more than six years after sale
- Tax records and receipts more than seven years old
“As an Atlanta-based company, Recall is proud to be a part of the ‘Great Shredder Event,’ and we look forward to providing such a valuable service to our community at no cost,” said Mark Wesley, President, Recall Americas. “The matrix of security we utilize to destroy and dispose of critical documents for companies around the world will be on display this Saturday to assist residents and small businesses to protect their most critical data.”
