Attorney General Peter Kilmartin kicked off a state-wide Shred-A-Thon as part of National Consumer Protection Week.
This is the third year the state has offered free shredding services for personal and confidential documents.
According to Kilmartin the past “Shred-A-Thons” have kept nearly nine tons of materials out of RI landfills.
Residents can bring up to 2 banker boxes of documents for shredding and are asked to donate a non-perishable food item to the RI Community Food Bank.
