Arlington, Virginia September 29, 2008 - Nearly 13,000 vehicles descended on 83 sites across the U.S. and Canada on Saturday, September 20, all filled with boxes and bags of sensitive documents to be shredded free of charge during Better Business Bureau’s second "Secure Your ID" Day community service event.

BBB and its leading partners National Association for Information Destruction (NAID), Equifax and ProQuo saw consumers and small business owners from 30 states and two provinces deliver more than 710,000 pounds (355 tons) of materials for safe, responsible destruction, making BBB "Secure Your ID" Day the largest single day event of its kind ever held.
