With tax season coming to an end soon, you may want to securely discard of sensitive papers such as bank statements, pay stubs, medical history papers and other confidential documents. Any papers containing your signature, Social Security number, account number or medical or legal information should be shredded after you no longer need them. Delta Community does not host Shred Day events, but here is a list of local shredding and recycling events that you may be able to use in the near future. Many of these are low cost or free to community members, and some events recur monthly, so check out the links for extra details.
