The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office will host a “Shred Day” from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Sept, 7, at the Lincoln County Courthouse parking lot, 225 West Olive Street in Newport.

The event is being held in an effort to combat identity theft and financial fraud for our citizens and assist them in protecting their personal privacy.

Bring your paper documents, files, notebooks, canceled checks, or any other document that contains your personal or sensitive information. We also accept CDs and DVDs that contain personal or sensitive information. The shredding is 100 percent secure and will be conducted by an iSecure truck on site.

There is no limit to the amount of shredding that you may bring; however, once the truck is full, we will not be able to accept any more documents.

Shredding is one of the most important things you can do to prevent identity theft. Below are just a few examples of items you should shred and not place in your trash can.

– Expired or unused credit and debit cards
– Credit card statements
– Pre-approved credit card offers and applications
– Checking and savings account statements
– Canceled checks
– Investment account statements
– Pension account statements
– Paycheck stubs
– Phone and utility bills
– Tax returns and statements
