Community Shred Day

POSTED IN ARTICLES ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 26, 2021

Fall Community Shred Day dates are set for five communities

Veridian will host mobile shred trucks in five communities across our field of membership  in the coming weeks for the semi-annual Community Shred Day.  The event is free and open to the public to promote the importance of shredding unwanted, sensitive documents in protecting our identities from fraud. Two new locations are planned for this fall, including a change in location for the Cedar Valley and an additional location in Omaha.

“We host Community Shred Day to remind our community about the importance of shredding unwanted, sensitive documents and to provide an easy opportunity to do it,” said Ashtin Hotek, Veridian’s public relations strategist and Community Shred Day coordinator. “The event is free and open to the public, and we're grateful that it's always well-attended."

Mobile shred trucks from Shred-It will be available from 9 a.m. to noon as scheduled below.  Attendees are asked to arrive with documents in the cargo area of their vehicle and to remain in their vehicle while event staff unload it and place it in shred bins. To ensure capacity for all who would like to attend, each event can accept no more than two 25-pound containers of documents per person. More tips on how to prepare for Community Shred Day are available at veridiancu.org/shred.

The shredded material will be recycled into commercial grade paper towels, toilet paper and other paper products. Since Veridian’s first Community Shred Day in 2009, an estimated 43,000 people have shredded more than one million pounds of documents. That equates to approximately 9,200 trees and 1,600 cubic yards of saved landfill space.
