RI A-G Hosts Shred-A-Thons To Avoid Identity Theft

After the overwhelming success of last year's consumer “shred-a-thons” throughout Rhode Island, Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin is announcing an expanded schedule of shred-a-thons for this year's National Consumer Protection Week.

This year, the Attorney General is also partnering with the Rhode Island Community Food Bank in asking the public to bring a non-perishable food item when they drop off their documents.

The shred-a-thons are free and open to the public. All consumers are invited to drop off up to two “banker boxes” of confidential documents for shredding. (A full list of dates and locations is below.)
