BROOKFIELD, Wis. – North Shore Bank today announced it will hold its 13th annual Community Shredding Day on Saturday, May 4, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. The public is invited to visit any of North Shore Bank’s area branches in Racine, Kenosha or throughout eastern Wisconsin to drop off outdated, personal documents for secure shredding. The bank-wide Community Shredding Day is free and open to the public and will take place rain or shine.

Paper materials will be accepted at all North Shore Bank branches, but those with large quantities of documents (1-2 bags) are encouraged to visit one of two local branches that will have special shredding trucks on site. Those locations are:  
“We know that spring is the time of year when many people clean every inch of their homes, which includes sorting through old personal documents,” said Sue Doyle, senior vice president of branch administration for North Shore Bank. “Our annual Community Shredding Day provides an opportunity for residents to reduce their financial paper trail and help protect against identity theft. We hope to see a lot of people take advantage of this free, once-a-year opportunity.”

Last year the bank collected more than 40 tons of paper documents for secure shredding. All shredded materials are recycled after collection. Acceptable material for shredding includes paper with staples and paper clips. Unacceptable materials include three/four ring binders, folders with the long skinny metal strips to hold papers in place, and black metal spring clips or anything similar. These items need to be separated and thrown in the trash or reused.
