SDCCU is offering free shredding services at the following three SDCCU locations from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday, November 4: El Cajon Branch at 312 W. Main St. and National City Branch at 2525 E. Plaza Blvd in San Diego County.; and Westminster Branch at 6745 Westminster Blvd., Suite B in Orange County.
“We encourage the community to take advantage of this free and convenient opportunity to dispose of sensitive data. With the greater prevalence of fraud in recent years, properly disposing of confidential documents is one way to minimize the risk of fraud,” said Teresa Halleck, SDCCU President and CEO. “We are happy to provide this beneficial service and also recommend SDCCU’s online banking services, such as eStatements, eNotices and eReceipts.”
The first 200 people at each location who take advantage of SDCCU’s free shredding services will receive a free gift. The public is invited to bring a maximum of two boxes containing personal and confidential information to have it shredded on the spot at no charge in the parking lot of these three SDCCU locations.
SDCCU began hosting its free Shred Day events in 2007 and has since collected, shredded and recycled nearly 3.5 million pounds of documents at no charge, saving nearly 30,000 trees (every 120 pounds shredded represents one saved tree).
Earlier this year, at the SDCCU Super Shred Event, SDCCU broke its existing Guinness World Records™ title for the most paper collected in a 24-hour period and achieved a new record for most paper shredded in an 8-hour period. The exciting occasion helped thousands of people, used more than 70 trucks and resulted in the collection of a total of 898,931 pounds of paper.
