WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

The Better business bureau of North Central Texas is giving you a chance to safely dispose of any personal documents.

April 21st, the BBB will host "Secure Your ID Day" from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. at their location on Kemp Street.

People can bring in any personal documents with sensitive information including old checkbooks, bank statements, or audit reports.

Wichita Falls President of the BBB of North Central Texas says the BBB tries to do these events often to help people keep their information safe.

\"The first rule of protecting your identity is if you don't need it,  destroy it responsibly," said Monica Horton, Wichita Falls President of the BBB.  "These documents contain your personal information.  You can not just toss them in the trash."

You can bring up to three boxes of papers and other information to the BBB to have shredded for free.
