Credit union offers shredding event

By From page A5 | March 10, 2014

VACAVILLE — Travis Credit Union is hosting a free document shredding and e-waste recycling event.

The event will take place from 10 a.m. to noon April 26 at the credit union at One Travis Way in Vacaville. It will include advice on how to avoid identity theft.

Solano County residents and small businesses can bring up to five boxes or paper grocery bags of documents to be shredded. E-waste can include obsolete computers, monitors, printers, keyboards, cellphones and personal digital assistants.

More than 8 million Americans last year became identity theft victims, a Travis Credit Union press release said.

“This is largely a crime of access,” credit union CEO Patsy Van Ouwerkerk said in the release. “Our goal here is to make personal information less accessible and empower people to be their own first line of defense against identity theft.”
