The Harris County Sheriff's Office is once again teaming up with Shred-It to help citizens permanently destroy old or unwanted personal documents.

Folks interested in participating in the effort to help prevent identity theft can bring their old documents to have them shredded. The HCSO, in collaboration with Shred-It, will provide this service free of charge on Saturday, March 26 from 9am to noon at the Harris County Court Annex located at 7900 Will Clayton Parkway in Humble.

This is the HCSO's first Shred-It event of the year. Up to 10,000 pounds of documents are shredded at each event.
