Shredded paperJohns Creek residents and businesses can safely get rid of sensitive documents Saturday, June 7, by taking them to a commercial shredder at Panera Bread Company, 11715 Medlock Bridge Road.

The shredding service, available from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., is sponsored by the restaurant chain and the City of Johns Creek. All paper will be recycled. The shredding is done on-site for free.

To avoid identity theft, the Federal Trade Commission recommends shredding charge receipts, copies of credit applications, insurance forms, physician statements, checks and bank statements, expired charge cards and credit offers.
