The Peoples Savings Bank will offer a secure way to destroy confidential records and information by hosting to a free community shredding event from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, June 24, in the parking lot of the Champaign County Community Center, 1512 South U.S. Route 68, Urbana.
Acceptable items people can deliver include paper materials such as bank/credit card statements, checks, deposit slips, bound and stapled paper, and all office-type paper. Unacceptable items include metal clips, binders, cardboard boxes, hazardous waste, trash, paper towels, plastics, glass and aluminum. There is a limit of five file boxes (the size in which copy paper is sold).
SHRED-IT, a trusted document management company, will be on hand to ensure that documents are handled safely and securely. People wishing to use this free service should enter the parking lot from the state Route 55 entrance to be directed to the shredding area. SHRED-IT will provide two trucks that participants will be able to drive up to for unloading. Staff members of Peoples Savings Bank and SHRED-IT will assist with the unloading of boxes and bags.
Refreshments will be served. Participants can register to win a cross-cut shredder. Information will be available concerning protection from identity theft and consumer fraud. Stop by for a visit with MOOLA and watch your items being shredded on site. Stop identity theft and recycle at the same time. For additional information, call The Peoples Savings Bank at 937-653-1600.
