Not to fear, it’s not a guitar contest. Organized by NYC Consumer Affairs, “shred Fest is a free paper-shredding citywide event that aims to increase public awareness about identity theft prevention. At Shred Fest you can safely shred personal papers for free using shredding trucks and get free identity theft prevention tips.”
The event begins at 10:00 am in Cadman Plaza Park (opposite Clark Street) and is scheduled to end at 4:00 pm or once the shredding trucks are full, whichever comes first. So arrive early!
What to Bring:
- Old bank statements
- Old papers with personal identifying information
- Old pay stubs
- Credit card applications
Shred Fest is taking place in all five boroughs on both Saturday and Sunday. Download event flyer (in PDF) for all locations and times.
