The Fairfield Police Department is holding a community “Shred Day” Oct. 18, from 9 a.m. through noon, at police headquarters, 100 Reef Road.

For a fee of $10 per banker or copy-paper-sized box, Connecticut residents can have old documents shredded on site. Police are touting the event as a way to safely get rid of tax returns, bank statements, and other documents containing identifying information such as social security numbers.

“In light of all the identity theft we see, this is an inexpensive way to reduce your exposure as a target,” Lt. James Perez of the Fairfield Police Department said.

The police department said shredding will be conducted rain or shine, and all shredded material will be recycled.  Proceeds from the event will benefit the Police Explorer Youth Program.
