ANTIOCH -- East Contra Costa residents concerned about identity theft can have their unwanted confidential documents shredded while they watch.

The event will be held 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. May 17 in the Dow Credit Union parking lot in the Bluerock Center at 4041 Lone Tree Way. Residents are encouraged to enter the parking lot from Bluerock Drive.

This is the sixth time the company has held a shredding event in Antioch.

Residents may bring up to six grocery bags, or three small boxes, of paper material to shred. Once shredded, the material is taken to a recycling center. Residents must remain with their material until it has been shredded.

Free information on preventing identity theft will be available. Identity theft affects nearly 10 million Americans each year, according to a Dow news release.
