Another free shred event is happening this month for Yolo County residents.
Put on by the District Attorney’s Office and Umpqua Bank, it will take place between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. (or until the truck is full) on Friday at Woodland’s Umpqua Bank location at 203 Main St.
“Shredding paperwork containing personal information, such as social security numbers, is one of the first steps in reducing the chance of identity theft happening to you,” said District Attorney Jeff Reisig.
This is an effort by Umpqua Bank to give back to the community and to support the efforts the District Attorney is making to protect individuals and businesses from identity theft, according to a release by the DA’s Office. Umpqua Bank is mindful of its customers’ banking routines, which adds an additional layer of protection so that if something out of the ordinary arises, the bank can stop it before the customers’ identities are compromised.
There is no limit to the number of documents that can be brought to shred. People are discouraged from bringing stiff metal, plastic bags DVDs or other items that can jam the shredded.
