About

In conjunction with Coastal Credit Union, Better Business Bureau Serving Eastern North Carolina will host a free 'Secure Your ID Day' Electronics Recycling & Document Shredding Event in the fall at Coastal Headquarters located at 1000 St. Albans Dr. in Raleigh. This event helps consumers protect themselves from identity theft by providing them an opportunity to properly dispose of their confidential documents and recycle their electronics correctly.

Community members are encouraged to take advantage of complimentary document shredding, collection of computers and hard-drives for secure destruction, electric/electronics recycling and identity protection tips. Participants can bring up to three boxes/bags of documents to be shredded and up to five electronic devices for safe recycling or destruction.

During the event, local partners Shred-It and GEEP will be on site. At the event, community members will be directed through the parking lot to stations where they will watch their paperwork and devices be safely destroyed and recycled, never having to leave their car while helping protect their own identities.

To date, the semi-annual 'Secure Your ID' Day events have safely destroyed nearly 400,000 lbs. of sensitive documents and nearly 100,000 lbs. of electronics.
