Redwood Credit Union (RCU) invites the Marin County community to come out to their annual free document shredding event on Saturday, August 28, 2021 from 9 a.m. to noon in the Sutter Novato Community Hospital parking lot at 180 Rowland Way. The popular annual Shred-a-Thon will feature free document shredding provided by Shred-It and electronic waste (e-waste) collection by Conservation Corps North Bay.
“We really missed seeing our community out last year due to the pandemic and are excited to welcome people back and help them securely dispose of their sensitive documents and electronics,” said Ryan Lind, RCU’s Novato branch experience manager. “Shredding old financial documents and other confidential paperwork is one of the best measures people can take to protect themselves from identity theft.”
Attendees may bring up to three standard-sized 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.
Monetary donations will be accepted at the event to benefit SchoolsRule Marin, a coalition of 20 public school district foundations that help fund literacy, technology, health, and arts programs for every public school student in Marin County.
