LARGO, MD – The Prince George’s County Department of Environmental Resources (DER) invites County citizens and residents to participate in a free Document Shredding Event on Saturday, June 16, 2012, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Gwynn Park High School located at 13800 Brandywine Road in Brandywine.  Residents may bring up to five tall kitchen bags or five archive boxes filled with documents to be shredded by mobile trucks from Eco-Shred, LLC and then recycled.
 
“Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in the United States, and document shredding is one of the most important ways the public can protect their identity,” said DER Director Samuel E. Wynkoop, Jr.  “I encourage County citizens and residents to take advantage of this opportunity to safely dispose of their sensitive, confidential documents.”
