Iowans shred 1 millionth pound of documents at Community Shred Days.
Veridian Credit Union’s Community Shred Day accepted its millionth pound of unwanted, sensitive documents on the event’s 10th anniversary September 21 and 28. The credit union hosted mobile shred trucks from Shred-it in Ankeny, Cedar Rapids, Iowa City and Waterloo, helping attendees to protect their identities by safely disposing of sensitive documents. The shredded material is recycled into commercial-grade paper products, saving an estimated 8,063 trees.
“This is 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 of sensitive documents, and we want to provide a free and convenient opportunity to help them do it.”
Veridian's next Community Shred Day will be in spring 2020. Event details will be posted as they're available at veridiancu.org/shred.
