College Offers Free Document Shredding

College Offers Free Document Shredding
South Dakota ranks last in the nation when it comes to identity fraud complaints. But you should still protect yourself.

It's something Professor Wendy Jansen's students learn about in and out of class.

"Every semester I teach this class, there's at least one, if not two who have family members or a personal identity crime happening to them," Jansen said.

To cut down on identity theft, Kilian is offering to shed your personal documents for free. All you need to do is bring a food donation and drop your papers in one of these slots.

"Anything with your personal identification information, credit card offers, credit card statements, billing statements. Information from prescriptions, you should take the label off your prescription bottle and shred that. Or anything that gives potential criminals account information or identity information like your social security number," Jansen said.

Documents are stored in locked containers, keeping your information safe from identity thieves.

"Many times its not a matter of if but when someone will try and take advantage of your identity," Jansen said.

From here, your documents will be taken to a secure location where they'll be shredded.  The school hopes the week-long event has a lasting impact.

"Down the road we want people to take more responsibility with their personal identity security, realizing it's a growing problem," Jansen said.

You can bring you personal information to Kilian through July 17. Hours are Monday through Thursday 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Home Federal Bank and Iron Mountain are sponsors of the event.
