BBB Helps Texomans Secures Their IDs

Posted: Updated:

The Better Business Bureau held a "Secure Your ID" Day, where Texomans could bring sensitive documents to have them shredded.

Albert Records Management brought its giant mobile shredding truck, "The Paper Pig", in order to shred the papers on scene.

Residents were allowed to bring up to 3 bags or boxes of papers. All they had to do was drive up, and crews would dump the papers into a recycling bin. That bin would then be mechanically lifted into the truck and dumped, and the paper shredded.

President of the BBB serving Central-North Texas Monica Horton said it's part of a nationwide effort to help Americans protect their identities. The BBB holds these events every April and October.
