SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Free document shredding will be available Tuesday at the Utah Capitol and elsewhere in the state later this week and next.

The events are part of an effort by Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff to prevent identity theft.

Residents can drop off up to eight legal boxes of documents to be shredded between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Capitol.

Similar events will be held Friday at Weber State University, Oct. 13 in Cedar City and St. George and Oct. 14 in Orem.

The "Utah Identity Theft Tour" also includes tips on preventing identity theft and information on a website to help victims of identity theft.
