Looking for a way to get rid of personal documents? NBC4's next Community Shred is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 10.
It's set for 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Largo, Maryland campus of Prince George's Community College. The shred will be held in Lot B.
Shredding is the easiest way to prevent identity theft, so bring your old bank statements and other private documents. There is a five-box maximum per each personal car.
To keep this event safe and secure, please do not bring batteries, flammables, combustibles, electronic equipment (hard drives), media materials (DVDs, CDs, tapes), binders, or hanging files.
Here's how to get there:
From Montgomery County, Maryland:
Follow the Beltway south to exit 17A (Upper Marlboro). You will exit onto Landover Road (Route 202 east). Follow Route 202 under Route 214 overpass. The college is about a half- mile south of the overpass, on the right side of Route 202. Make a right onto Campus Way and then make a left onto Prince Place to access road to Lot B.
From Virginia or Washington, D.C.:
Follow the Beltway north, taking exit 15A (Upper Marlboro). Take the PGCC exit onto Route 202 south (Landover Road). The college is on the right after the traffic signal at Campus Way. If traveling from the District, you can also follow East Capitol Street, which becomes Central Avenue. Take PGCC exit onto Route 202 south. Make a right onto Campus Way and then make a left onto Prince Place to access road to Lot B.
If you plan on going to the shred, you must be in line by 11 a.m. at the intersection of Prince Place and Campus Way South. For safety reasons, organizers have requested that people remain in their vehicles. No business vehicles are permitted.
