Community Shred Day
Spring 2022 dates are coming soon!
We host Community Shred Day each spring and fall in communities across Iowa and eastern Nebraska to help you protect your identity by safely destroying unwanted, sensitive documents. Events are open to the public for free, on-site shredding services from Shred-it from 9 a.m. to noon. Sign up to receive a reminder email about upcoming Community Shred Days and in-branch shredding opportunities.
Documents recommended for shredding include anything that contains your identifying information, such as old checkbooks, credit card offers, account statements, etc. A maximum of two containers with a 25-pound limit per container will be enforced at on-site locations. Attendees are asked to bring documents in the cargo area of your vehicle, remain in your vehicle and enjoy the free, full-service event.

Since the first Community Shred Day in 2009, Veridian has helped approximately 46,000 people shred more than 1.2 million pounds of unwanted, sensitive documents. That equates to an estimated 9,800 trees and 1,700 cubic yards of landfill space saved. All shredded paper will be recycled into commercial-grade paper towels, toilet paper and other paper products.
Veridian will also continue to offer a free shred service for members at select branches on designated dates in the spring of 2022. Members may safely discard their unwanted, sensitive documents in locked bins located inside select branches during regular business hours. Please limit documents to shred at these locations to 25 pounds per person.
The next Community Shred Days and branch shred bin opportunities will take place in the spring and be announced on this page in early 2022.
