Protect your identity and shred old files in DeKalb

No more storing personal files you no longer need. Take them to get shredded.

DeKalb residents can declutter their desk areas and take all their old paperwork down to the sanitation division, where the county is holding a free shredding event Saturday.

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.
