Community Shred Day

Next Community Shred Day set for spring 2021

On-site Locations

We regret that unique circumstances at each event site are requiring us to cancel Community Shred Day for the fall of 2020. We look forward to offering this free event again in the spring of 2021.

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 Day will be in the spring of 2021 at the locations listed below (dates to be determined).

Community Shred Day Locations
Westdale, Cedar Rapids
Iowa City Hy-Vee East (parking lot)
FFA Enrichment Center - 1055 SW Prairie Trail Pkwy, Ankeny
Ansborough, Waterloo

Shred Bins

Veridian will also continue to offer a free shred service for members at select branches in the spring of 2021. Members may safely discard their unwanted, sensitive documents in locked bins located inside the branches during regular business hours. Please limit documents to shred at these locations to 25 pounds per person.
