BBB Shred Day A Success
Shredding more than 39,000 pounds of confidential documents, the BBB of Western Michigan’s Secure Your ID Day was a great success! The BBB partnered with document shredding companies, financial institutions, and a church to provide free document shredding to more than 300 individuals and small businesses. Thank you to Calvary Church and West Michigan Document Shredding in Grand Rapids, Gateway in Berrien Springs, Profile in Traverse City, Keystone Community Bank and West Michigan Document Shredding in Kalamazoo, and First Bank West Michigan and Rapid Shred in Hastings.
Securely shredding and disposing of documents are important to protecting individuals and businesses from fraud. The events were also good for the environment, as these shredding companies forward the shredded paper to various paper companies to be recycled into other paper products.
