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.
