The following is a press release issued by the Redwood Credit Union:
Redwood Credit Union Redwood Credit Union invites the Mendocino County community to come to its annual free document shredding event on Saturday, June 18, 2022 from 9 a.m. to noon in the parking lot of RCU’s Ukiah branch at 195 S. Orchard Ave. 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’re happy to provide this free service for the community to help people securely dispose of their sensitive documents and e-waste,” said Todd Andrus, Redwood Credit Union’s Ukiah Branch Experience Manager. “Safely eliminating old financial documents and other confidential information is one of the best measures people can take to protect themselves from identity theft.”
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.
Monetary donations will be accepted at the event to benefit Plowshares, a community-funded nonprofit located in Ukiah that provides hot nutritious meals and resources to those in need in inland Mendocino County.
