A flyer released from the county encourages residents to prevent identity theft, protect the environment and properly dispose of their personal sensitive documents. It also notes that only 10 standard -size boxes of documents per vehicle are allowed.

This shredding event is part of DeKalb’s Operation Spring Clean Sweep 2018, a program focusing on litter collection, and illegal dumping among other things.

Residents can bring their documents to 3720 Leroy Scott Drive, Decatur, Ga. 30032 between 9 a.m. and noon.
