Shred Your Confidential Documents at Shred Day September 16th

Clues to your personal and financial information are often buried throughout your personal paperwork and mail. One search through your mailbox or trash could garner enough evidence for a thief to take control of your identity — and your finances. Thieves can use credit cards, financial statements, or utility bills to obtain and exploit that personal information.

The first line of defense is to destroy documents that contain your personal information before anyone can access it. Private documents and credit/debit cards, which contain sensitive information, should be destroyed once you no longer need them.

Join us for Shred Day! 

If you are looking for a way to securely shred and destroy your old documents, why not bring them to our Shred Day event on Saturday, September 16th from 2:00 – 4:30 p.m.?

We will have Shred-it trucks on site to securely shred documents at 3 of our branch locations:

Livonia Branch- 34000 W. Seven Mile Road
Canton Branch- 6355 N. Canton Center Road
Gaylord Branch- 1360 W. Main Street 

Shredding is a great way to destroy your personal documents to protect your information and your finances. As a general rule, it’s better to have as few physical documents on file as possible. Switching to online banking and opting-out of paper statements can also help keep your financial information secure.

Hosting Shred Day is just one way we try to help our members and communities, and make their lives easier. If you have questions about our Shred Day event please call us at (877) 937-2328.
