Attorney General Jack Conway, the Better Business Bureau of Central and Eastern Kentucky, CINTAS Corportation, and Lowe's Home Improvement have teamed up to offer free document shredding to the public.

It will take place Saturday, May 18th at Lowe's in Hamburg from 9:00-noon.

Attorney General Conway says 15 million American's have their identities stolen every year, but shredding documents that have bank account numbers, credit card information, Social Security numbers, birth dates, PINs, or tax information can help stop it.

Members of the Office of Consumer Protection will be at the shred event to answer any questions about identity theft, scams, or other consumer protection issues.

You can bring up to five boxes of paper to Lowe's to be shredded for free.
