Gather your sensitive financial and personal documents and bring them to BCREMC during business hours, Dec. 12-16 for free secure paper shredding. When you arrive, deposit your items in the bins located in the lobby. Speedy Shred, a local professional shredding business, will come throughout the week to shred all of your paper on-site so that your personal information is not compromised.

As part of our commitment to the community, this is a free paper shredding event! Bring your paper documents that need to be shredded (within reason). If you don’t have a shredder at home, this important service would likely cost you money at an office supply store or if you went through a paper-shredding company directly. Even if you have a shredder, this event will save you time if you have a lot of documents.

Some important documents you can bring in for free paper shredding including, but are not limited to: 

  • old tax returns
  • pay stubs
  • credit card bills
  • bank account statements
  • loan statements
  • paid utility bills
  • old insurance policies
  • canceled and voided checks
  • credit card offers and items with your signature 

For tax returns, tax-deductible charitable donations, tuition costs, business or medical expenses, keep for seven years. 

Please keep bins free of: 

  • boxes or sacks that you might bring your items in
  • no three-ring binders
  • metal hanging folders

Staples and paper clips are allowed.
