Free Indoor Document Shredding Week Set April 15-19

AMERICAN INSURANCE customers are invited to bring their sensitive personal and confidential documents for our free indoor shredding event.

Guard against identity theft by keeping your sensitive documents out of the trash. Deposit your documents at AMERICAN INSURANCE in a locked, secure bin that will be shredded under the NAID AAA Certification Program by Lewis Clark Recyclers of Lewiston. No one will see your documents and they will be held under secure conditions until shredded. This is one step among

many others you can take to protect your identity.
