Posted on 08/10/23

Due to the success of our previous events, AARP NY is sponsoring more free Fight Fraud Shred It events through September 16 at select locations in New York. We are helping people fight back against fraud and help protect them from identity theft by shredding truckloads of sensitive personal documents.

Stay one step ahead of identity thieves and get your personal and sensitive documents shredded post-tax-season. Your documents will be shredded on-site, free of charge. There is a limit of 3 small boxes/bags per person. Metal, plastic, and other materials may damage shredders and will not be accepted. Please, no magazines or cardboard.



Additional Event Information:
Shredding truck will stay on-site for the time scheduled or until it reaches capacity.
