FCCU to Hold 2024 Shred Events


FCCU to Hold 2024 Shred Events

Shred Events

First Community Credit Union is sponsoring its annual Shred Day at several locations. These events are free and open to the public. 

Shred Truck Events

  • Jamestown on Saturday, May 18th from 9 am until trucks are full

  • Devils Lake on Monday, May 6th from 11 am until trucks are full

At either of these locations, simply drive up to the Docu Shred or Central Business Systems truck, deposit the items for shredding and they’ll be shredded right before your eyes. Documents to be shredded should be removed from binders, but staples, paper clips, CDs and floppy discs are okay to be shredded. Limits apply for shred items.

With the ever-growing risk of identity theft, FCCU feels that it’s important to give the community an opportunity to discard confidential documents safely and securely. One-way identity thieves can get your information is by picking through a person’s trash and looking for things that contain identifying information. Shredding those items securely helps prevent the information from getting into the wrong hands. As a reminder, FCCU offers ID Safe Choice, to help protect you from identity theft.

Susan Long Swen, FCCU Community Engagement Specialist says, “We know how items such as bank statements, old tax filings, duplicate checks, physician statements, credit card receipts and many other private documents can build up in homes. We want to provide the community with a safe outlet to have them securely destroyed.” 

“This also helps to protect the environment of our communities because all the shredded documents are then recycled,” Long Swen adds. “It is a win-win for the members of our communities and the environment – saving the trees and protecting your identity.”
