Hoping to help alleviate the concern over identity theft and other personal security issues among local residents, the Cambridge Consumers’ Council, working in cooperation with the United States Postal Service, is pleased to offer Free Document Shredding on Friday, Aug. 3, from 11 a.m.-3 p.m., outside of the Central Square Post Office, 770 Mass. Ave.

The free event – held rain or shine – will provide an opportunity for the public to securely dispose of personal and confidential paper documents. Documents will be destroyed on the spot in a highly advanced technical mobile shredding truck.

Ten minute drop-off parking will be available on Massachusetts Avenue (Between Sellers & Pleasant Street), Pleasant Street (Between Mass. Ave & Green Street), and Inman Street (Between Mass. Ave & Bishop Allen Drive). Members from the Consumers’ Council, United States Postal Service, the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office, and the Patrick-Murray Administration Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation will also be present to speak with consumers about ways to protect themselves from identity theft.
