This Saturday, April 28th, from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM, the City of Houston will be hosting a dual event at the Westside Police Station.  The first portion will be a document shredding event.  There will be a large shredding truck available free of charge for anyone to bring their personal documents to be destroyed.  It is our understanding that this particular truck has an internal video camera so that you can actually see your documents being shredded.  Also available will be literature provided by the police department on preventing identity theft.
The second portion of the event is a DEA drug take back.  This is an opportunity for all citizens to bring there old, unwanted or expired medication and have them property disposed of by the DEA.  These can be either prescriptions or over the counter medications.  This also is a service provided free of charge. 
We would love to have as large a turnout as possible for this event, so please forward this to everyone in your organizations.  The should go a long way toward helping prevent identity theft issues over personal financial information not being property destroyed, as well as keeping our landfills and waterways free of unwanted medications.
