[October 17, 2014]  LINCOLN - Are you worried about your personal information getting into the wrong hands? If so, bring your old financial records, tax returns and other sensitive household records to be shredded and destroyed in a secure and confidential manner. Hard drives will also be accepted for destruction.

The State Bank of Lincoln and the Logan County Joint Solid Waste Agency are co-sponsoring the free Confidential On-Site Paper Shredding and Hard Drive Destruction Program. Proper disposal of this sensitive information may prevent individuals in your household from becoming the victim of identity theft.

The Confidential On-Site Paper Shredding and Hard Drive Destruction Program will be held Saturday, October 18th from 9 AM to Noon. The event will be held at the Logan County Fairgrounds. Participants are asked to use the Main Gate entrance.

Participants will be limited to five bags or boxes of materials to be shredded. Participants are asked to ensure that no plastic, glass, trash or non-paper items are brought to the collection. Participants are required to remove the hard drive from the computer prior to bringing it in for destruction. Participants will be responsible for the disposal of bags and/or boxes brought to the collection.

Participants will be able to watch the shredding and destruction of paperwork and hard drives via a camera located in the bed of the shredding truck. Participants are responsible for maintaining possession of their materials until they are brought to the truck for shredding; sponsors of the paper shredding and hard drive destruction are not responsible for any materials left unattended prior to or during the shredding event.
