Keep confidential information off trash

Harter's accepts boxes and shreds documents

Keep confidential information off trash

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Christmas has come and gone, and now you're left with all the gifts and the packaging, but be careful how you get rid of those boxes.

Leaving boxes and packages outside after the holidays can give potential thieves an idea of what you have inside your home. Mailing addresses attached to boxes can also lead people to your home.

Disposal experts recommend you shred any documents and avoid throwing away anything that could lead back to your home.

"Generally we recommend not placing any kind of confidential or anything of a confidential nature inside a bin, whether it be recycling or trash,” said Harter’s Quick Clean-up Project Manager Matt Harter.

Harter's Quick Clean-Up does accept boxes free of charge brought directly to their La Crosse location.
