With Tax Day come and gone, Hermosa Beach residents will have a chance to safely dispose of documents that are no longer needed but still contain sensitive information, such as Social Security numbers and bank information.
The city is holding Shred Day on Saturday, April 28, at the Hermosa Beach City Hall, 1315 Valley Drive, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The service is limited to residents only, but is free.
City Councilman Howard Fishman reminded residents during the regular city council meeting on April 24 that tax documents older than seven years should be shredded, rather than simply discarded, to protect against identity theft.
The event is co-sponsored by Hermosa Beach Community Garden and Consolidated Disposal.
