Join us for our semi-annual Community Shred Day.
Fall Shred Day results
An estimated 2,500 Iowans shredded more than 62,000 pounds of unwanted, sensitive documents at Veridian Credit Union’s Community Shred Day events across Iowa on Sept. 29 and Oct. 6.
“It’s the most-requested and best-attended event we host,” said Trina Becker, Veridian’s Manager of Loss Prevention. “That shows people understand the importance of safely disposing sensitive documents, and we want to provide a free and convenient opportunity to do that.”
We host Community Shred Day twice each year to help you protect your identity by safely destroying unwanted, sensitive documents. On-site Information Destruction will provide on-site shredding services from 9 a.m. to noon at select locations. Please limit documents to shred at these locations to two containers with a maximum of 25 pounds per container.
Since the credit union's first Community Shred Day in 2009, Veridian has helped approximately 33,000 people shred more than 889,500 pounds of unwanted, sensitive documents. That equates to an estimated 7,538 trees saved. The event is free and open to the public, and all shredded paper will be recycled into commercial-grade paper towels, toilet paper and other paper products.
Veridian is also offering a free shred service for members at select outlying branches. Members may safely discard their unwanted, sensitive documents in locked bins located inside select branches. Please limit documents to shred to 25 pounds per person.
