About Us

Community Shred Day

Join us for our spring Community Shred Day.

On-site Locations

We're taking measures to offer safe, no-contact service at Community Shred Day. Attendees are asked to bring documents in the trunk or cargo area of your vehicle, remain in your vehicle at all times and enjoy the free, full-service event. Event staff will wear a face-covering and unload your documents for you.

We host Community Shred Day each spring and fall to help you protect your identity by safely destroying unwanted, sensitive documents. Shred-it provides on-site shredding services from 9 a.m. to noon. Attendees are asked to limit documents to shred at these locations to two containers with a maximum of 25 pounds per container.


Since the first Community Shred Day in 2009, Veridian has helped approximately 40,000 people shred more than one million pounds of unwanted, sensitive documents. That equates to an estimated 8,603 trees and 1,524 cubic yards of landfill space saved. All shredded paper will be recycled into commercial-grade paper towels, toilet paper and other paper products.

The next Community Shred Days are set from 9 a.m. to noon at the following locations:

Veridian will also continue to offer a free shred service for members at select branches in the spring of 2021.
