Redwood Credit Union invites the Mendocino County community to come to its annual free document shredding event on Saturday, June 18 from 9 a.m. to noon in the parking lot of the Ukiah branch of RCU at 195 S. Orchard Ave.
The popular annual Shred-a-Thon will include free document shredding provided by Shred-It and electronic waste (e-waste) collection by Conservation Corps North Bay.
“We are pleased to provide this free service to the community to help people safely dispose of their sensitive documents and electronic waste,” said Todd Andrus, Chief Experience Officer of Redwood Credit’s Ukiah Branch. Union. “Securely disposing of old financial documents and other confidential information is one of the best steps people can take to protect themselves against identity theft.”
Attendees may bring up to three boxes (15″x12″x10″) of confidential documents to be shredded, such as old financial statements, canceled checks and credit card offers. Conservation Corps North Bay will also be on hand to collect and recycle electronic waste such as old computers, printers, cell phones and personal electronic devices.
Monetary donations will be accepted at the event to benefit Plowshares, a community-funded non-profit organization located in Ukiah that provides hot, nutritious meals and resources to people in need in Interior Mendocino County.
