HOUSTON (CBS Houston) If you’re a Harris County resident and have documents that need to be shredded, but do not have the manpower to shred them, then consider taking those documents that cannot otherwise be trashed to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office document shredding event later this month.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office is hosting its first document shredding event of the year by teaming up with Shred-It to help citizens permanently destroy old or unwanted personal documents that cannot otherwise be trashed.

“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 23, 2013 from 9 a.m. to noon at the HCSO’s substation at 7900 Will Clayton Pkwy. in north Harris County.Citizens may bring up to five regular size ‘banker’ boxes per vehicle,” added authorities from HCSO.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office says that the shredding of important documents now can curtail identity theft and headache later: “Identity theft has become one of the costliest crimes in the nation. In addition to helping prevent thieves from physically getting their hands on the discarded personal and confidential information of others, Shred-It also helps by heightening general public awareness on how to avoid becoming a victim of identity theft,” adds HCSO officials.

If you’re not able to make it to this upcoming event, then keep a watchful eye of more HCSO shredding events that will take place later this year.

Are you interested in safely disposing of and shredding those papers? Here is the event at a glance:
