MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. – Mount Vernon residents that are weary of becoming a victim of identity theft will have their last opportunity to safely destroy unwanted documents when the Westchester County mobile shredder comes to the city for the last time on Saturday, Dec. 14.

From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., the mobile shredder will be stationed at the municipal lot at the intersection of 5th Avenue and 2nd Street. Residents will have the opportunity to safely destroy documents that contain personal information.

Residents can bring as many as four file-size boxes of confidential papers per household. This will be the last appearance of the mobile shredder in the county this year.

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.
