The city of North Bend is hosting a free community shred event, 8 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Oct. 28 at North Bend City Hall, 211 Main Ave. N., in the parking area adjacent to City Hall on Second Avenue.

This free event is open to all North Bend residents. Individuals may bring up to two file boxes or three grocery bags of documents. Metal, plastic bags and DVD’s will not be accepted for shredding.

Shredding sensitive documents is one way to reduce your risk of becoming an identity theft victim by keeping your personal information out of the hands of criminals. You can clear out your filing cabinets, storage closets, home offices and basements and help the environment at the same time.

On-site destruction is provided by Shred-It of Western Washington as part of the city’s solid waste and recycling contract with Republic Services.

For detailed information on what to shred and resources to protect you from identity theft, visit the Washington State Office of the Attorney General website at
