CAMDENTON, Mo. — With the number of victims of identity theft continuing to increase, the laws regarding document destruction are becoming more and more stringent; the liability and legal requirements involved are a lot greater than some businesses may be aware of.
Lake Area Industries, a local organization dedicated to offering the developmentally disabled meaningful employment, offers a document-shredding service to helps local businesses protect themselves and their clients from identify theft. LAI points out identity theft often occurs simply by the collection of papers containing sensitive information that are thrown in the trash rather than shredded.
Through an ongoing pick up contract with LAI, businesses are provided with a secured bin to dispose of sensitive documents and are able to arrange pick up times that best meet their needs.
Since 1983, Lake Area Industries, Inc. has been providing meaningful employment for individuals with disabilities, providing them daily challenges and support to reach their greatest potential. LAI also partners with and supports other non-profit organizations, in an effort to help others in the Lake Area.To learn more about Lake Area Industries contact 573-346-7934 or find them on Facebook.
