About Shred Days
Heartland Bank is offering this shred service free of charge. A schedule of event dates and sites can be found here. Some events may end earlier than scheduled if shred truck fills to capacity.
Local residents and businesses are invited to bring personal documents for secure, onsite shredding. A mobile shred unit will be on hand to destroy documents onsite. Attendees will be able to watch their documents being shredded through the unit’s observation window. Items with staples and paperclips can also be shredded. There is a limit of 5 containers per visit.
Properly disposing of personal documents is one way for people to protect themselves from identity theft. The Federal Trade Commission recommends shredding sensitive documents such as charge receipts, old utility bills, copies of credit applications, insurance forms, physician statements, unused checks, bank statements, and expired charge cards.
