Shred TruckCentricity Credit Union will have a shred truck available at the Hermantown Branch on Saturday, June 23rd from 9am to 11am! Take this opportunity to gather all your old, no longer needed, sensitive documents and get rid of them safely! Can't make it to this shred day? Consider getting an at home shredder! Home shredders have become much more accessible in recent years. Many run between $20 and $100 and are conveniently small. For typical bills and other regular documents, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) says that you should be shredding those documents after the payment clears. For other types of documents, tax information, loan documents, and other forms, some have a recommended storage life of several years, and some should be kept indefinitely. Do the research before you start shredding! While we can't tell you what kind of shredder to get, we can point you in the right direction. One of our staff members purchased this $30 shredder from Amazon about four years ago and says, "It sounds silly, but this was pretty much life changing for me. I used to let things sit for such a long time and there was so much clutter. I would sometimes use a fire pit, but that's not the right way to dispose of documents - it's bad for the environment and creates a lot flying ash if you burn a large amount. I realized that home shredders are not expensive and completely worth it!" Amazon isn't the only place to find them. You can also get them at any large retailer or home office supply store, like Walmart or OfficeMax for relatively low costs.
Mark the date and time on your calendar:Saturday, June 23rd 9am-11am 4477 LaVaque Rd. Hermantown, MN 55811
**Please note that the truck will not be available until 9am and there is not an advantage to arriving very early. The early bird may catch the worm, but he won't be able to start shredding his documents until the shred truck is ready at 9am!
