Redwood Credit Union invites the Sonoma County community to come out to its annual free document shredding event on Saturday, August 6, 2022 from 9 a.m. to noon at their administrative offices at 3033 Cleveland Avenue in Santa Rosa. The popular Shred-a-Thon event will feature free document shredding provided by Shred-It and electronic waste (e-waste) collection by Conservation Corps North Bay.
Attendees may bring up to three boxes (15”x12”x10”) of confidential documents for shredding, such as old financial statements, canceled checks, and credit card offers. 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.
“We’re happy to provide this free service for the community to help people securely dispose of their sensitive documents and e-waste,” said Matt Martin, RCU’s senior vice president of community and government relations. “Safely eliminating old financial documents and other confidential information is one of the best measures people can take to protect themselves from identity theft.”
Nonperishable food and monetary donations will be accepted at the event to benefit Redwood Empire Food Bank, a Northern California nonprofit committed to making adequate nutrition available and accessible to those who need it.
