Houston Mayor Annise Parker hosts document-shredding initiative
After four months of partnering with Data Shredding Services of Texas Inc., Houston Mayor Annise Parker formerly announced the city’s shredding initiative before the city council on July 31.
Houston and the document-shredding company began working together in April to provide free services to the community in an effort to prevent identity theft. The initiative is sponsored by the Mayor’s Citizens Assistance Office, a division of the Department of Neighborhoods, and the Houston Police Department. Since the partnership began, DSS has shredded more than 40,000 pounds of paper materials.
Each month the initiative hosts a shredding event as a selected HPD station where residents can safely dispose of documents with confidential information. The next shredding event will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 11 at the HPD Southeast Station, 8300 Mykawa Road in Houston.
