MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Do you have personal papers that you need to get rid of? You're in Luck! The Montgomery Clean City Commission, City Councilman Richard Bollinger, MAX Credit Union and AARP Alabama and Gilmore Services will be offering on-site document destruction on Friday, April 11.

This event is free and being held at the south parking lot of the Garrett Coliseum from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. The goal is to help fight back against identity theft and the public is encouraged to bring up to five bags or boxes of unwanted personal information.

A shredding truck will be located to safely destroy those items. Gilmore Services guarantees that all confidential records are disposed of properly and recycled.

AARP is asking event participants to consider bringing a donation of non-perishable food items to benefit the Montgomery Area Food Bank.
