RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina consumers looking to safely get rid of documents that contain personal information cam head to one of 35 locations in April and May and have those papers shredded.

Attorney General Roy Cooper says consumers can protect themselves from identity theft by bringing pre-approved credit card offers, old bills, out-of-date account statements and other documents that include personal information to any of the free shred-a-thons.

The shred-a-thons are sponsored by a number of groups, including Cooper’s office, the Better Business Bureau, banks and credit unions, shredding companies, local civic groups, law enforcement and the media.

For dates, times, exact locations and other details about shred-a-thons, see the complete list of events at www.ncdoj.gov .
