FREE SHRED EVENT OPEN TO PUBLIC
Prevent ID Theft by Shredding Outdated Personal Documents.
First Community Credit Union is sponsoring its annual FREE Shred Day. This event is free and open to the public. Simply drive up to the Docu Shred and MinnKota trucks, deposit the items for shredding and they'll be shredded right before your eyes. Documents to be shredded should be removed from binders, but staples, paper clips, CDs and floppy discs are okay to be shredded.
With the ever growing risk of identity theft, First Community Credit Union feels that it's important to give the community an opportunity to discard confidential documents safely and securely. One way identity thieves can get your information is by picking through a person's trash and looking for things that contain identifying information. Shredding those items securely helps prevent the information from getting into the wrong hands.
Noel Schanilec, First Community Credit Union marketing specialist says, "We know how items such as bank statements, old tax filings, old checks or duplicate checks, physician statements, credit card receipts or statements, credit card offers and many other private documents can build up in homes. We want to provide the community with a safe outlet to have them securely destroyed."
"This also helps to protect the environment of our communities because all the shredded documents are then recycled," Schanilec adds. "It is a win-win for the members of our communities and the environment – saving the trees and protecting your identity."
