Prevent Identity Theft
Removing telephone numbers, account information and personal data from cell phones before turning them in for recycling.
Remove subscription labels from newspapers or magazines, and shipping labels from cardboard boxes before dropping them in the recycling bin.
When recycling mail and personal documents, shred it or at least tear up the parts that contain personal information. Even those annoying offers for credit cards can be used by thieves to obtain credit in your name.
Wipe hard drives clean before recycling your computer. Research the recipient to ensure they will perform another wipe before they resell or give your old unit to someone else.
Don't let thieves steal your identity from information left on recyclables. Minimize your risk by:
