The Urban League of Portland is hosting a community shred event for all of Portland on December 6th. 2014. Come to our offices at 10 N Russell St any time between 11am and 1pm, and bring your documents in need of safe disposal. EnviroShred Northwest will be there in our parking lot (enter on N Williams) with a cross cutting shred truck to destroy your personal documents. Learn how you can protect yourself from fraud, safeguard your identity, and recycle. This event is free and open to the public.
Questions about what to shred?
- Anything that has your Social Security number
- Anything with financial account information.
- Any kinds of mailings from your financial institution (like advertisements or changes of terms)
- Any kind of credit card offers and applications
- Monthly bills with account number, address and last four of your social security number

- Anything related to taxes and receipts with your signature, which identity thieves could use to forge other documents.
- Anything with any other kind of personal identifying information that you wouldn’t want identity thieves to find.
