Salisbury Bank is hosting a free Community Shred-it Day at its Canaan branch office, 100 Main Street, Canaan, Connecticut. The event is free and open to the public, and is held to help members of the community safely dispose of unwanted personal documents.
Shredding services will be available on Saturday, July 14 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. People are welcome to bring up to four boxes of unneeded confidential documents (paper only, no binders) to be shredded and recycled for free. Details about the event can be found on the Bank’s website, www.salisburybank.com .
“We’re pleased to host this Community Shred-it Day,” said Rick Cantele, president and CEO. “Not only does shredding sensitive documents decrease the risk of identity theft, but recycling the shredded paper contributes significantly to conservation efforts.”
Examples of items that are suitable for on-site shredding include: bank statements, medical and insurance forms, tax forms, receipts and personal files. Staples and paper clips do not have to be removed.
Shredding will be provided by Shred-it, Inc. Shred-it specializes in providing secure document destruction services. After material is shredded on site, it is subsequently baled and recycled. This ensures that private information is disposed of safely, and that the paper shredding helps save the environment in the process.
