Redwood Credit Union (RCU) is hosting a free document shredding event for the community on Saturday, June 25, 2016 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm at Novato Community Hospital parking lot at 100 Rowland Way in Novato. The popular Shred-a-Thon event will include free document shredding provided by Shred-It and e-waste collection by the Conservation Corps North Bay.
“Shredding old financial documents and other confidential paperwork is one of the best measures people can take to protect themselves from identity theft,” said Richard De Ramon, RCU’s Novato Branch Manager. “We’re happy to provide this free service for the community to help people securely dispose of their sensitive documents.”
Attendees may bring up to 3 banker-sized boxes (15”x12”x10”) of confidential documents for shredding, such as old financial statements, canceled checks, credit card offers and other outdated documents containing personal information. Conservation Corps North Bay will also be on site to collect and recycle e-waste such as old computers, printers, cell phones and personal electronics.
Monetary donations will also be accepted at the event to benefit SchoolsRule Marin, a coalition of 20 school foundations that help fund literacy, technology, and arts programs for every public school student in Marin County.
