If your business is drowning in paper, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) has some guidelines for what you should keep and how long to keep it. To protect your own and your customers' identities, shred anything with private or financial information before you discard it.
"Companies need to keep good records to stay on top of their business and, in some cases, to protect themselves from litigation," Mechele Agbayani Mills, President and CEO of BBB Central East Texas, said in a prepared statement. "A retention program that regularly reviews and destroys unneeded documents can reduce clutter and make it easier to manage day-to-day."
From 8 a.m. to noon on Oct. 20 at East Texas Shredding, 1114 W. Harrison in Longview, and from 8 a.m. to noon on Oct. 24 at the Lindale Chamber of Commerce, 205 S. Main St. in Lindale, companies and individuals can shred up to 300 pounds of paper per vehicle for free. East Texas Shredding and Ark-La-Tex Shredding are donating their services. For more information, contact the BBB at 903-581-5704, www.easttexas.bbb.org or www.bbb.org/us/Identity-Theft-Resources.
