Waterloo, IA: Veridian Credit Union hosts an annual Community Shred Day to help Iowans protect their identity. Rather than throwing documents containing personal information in the trash, Veridian invites the public to bring them to this free event where they will be securely shred and safely recycled.
On Saturday, October 6 from 9 a.m. to noon, select Veridian branches will be accepting up to two 20-gallon totes of paper per person for shredding:
Ankeny: Ankeny Main, 1201 S. Ankeny Blvd.
Cedar Rapids: Westdale, 2810 Edgewood Road SW
Iowa City: Eastside Hy-Vee®, 812 S. First Ave.
Waterloo: Ansborough, 1827 Ansborough Ave.
West Des Moines: West Lakes, 5910 University Ave.
Veridian has partnered with Iron Mountain® and On-Site Information Destruction, Inc. to provide this shred opportunity. This event continues to grow. Last year, approximately 3,000 people protected their identities by bringing over 75,000 pounds of documents to shred.
Computers can also be dropped off thanks to Veridian’s partnership with Goodwill Industries and the Dell Reconnect program. Goodwill encourages people to bring computer equipment with the hard drive erased. Donated equipment is repaired, refurbished, recycled or resold, with all proceeds directed to Goodwill job training programs.
