HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Community Shred Day, hosted by the Mississippi Attorney General's Office, will take place in four cities across the state with one of the cities being Hattiesburg.

Community Shred Day for the city of Hattiesburg will be Friday, March 16 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Walmart Supercenter on U.S. Highway 98.

Participants may bring up to three bags or boxes of sensitive documents (paper only) to be shredded at no charge. This service is first-come, first-served, and it is not open to businesses. A shredding truck will remain on location until the truck is full or the scheduled end time, whichever occurs first.

Hood wants to reminds consumers that simple things such as taking out the garbage can expose people to identity theft. Therefore, consumers should shred receipts, pre-approved credit card offers or convenience checks that have not been used.

For more information about the event, or about identity protection, visit www.agjimhood.com

If you miss Friday's shred day, there will be another shredding event hosted by H&R Block in Laurel on March 24 from 9 a.m. to noon. That event will be held at the Laurel Shopping Center on Domer Avenue.
