Are you overwhelmed with papers you would like to get rid of? The Farmers Bank regularly organizes these events for their hometown communities to raise awareness to the ongoing issues of identity theft protection and recycling. Each ton of paper recycled saves 26 trees and is used for future paper products. In past events we’ve recycled several tons of paper and hope to do the same at this event,which will be held at The Farmers Bank Main Office, 9 East Clinton Street, on Saturday, October 27, from 9 a.m. to noon.
Unfortunately we had to cancel our original scheduled date for our FREE Community Shred Day on Saturday, October 6 due to an unforeseen issue with the shred truck.
Consumers and small business owners can securely destroy sensitive paper documents quickly, efficiently and free of charge. All documents will be shredded on-site. You don’t need to remove papers from file folders, take out staples or remove paperclips as they can run through the shredder. Participants will be able to watch their documents be destroyed and leave with peace of mind, knowing their personal information will not get into the wrong hands. Once the documents are shredded, they are then recycled.
Any documents or media that display account numbers or social security numbers could lead to identity theft and should be properly shredded. We recommend shredding the following items: financial statements, credit applications, insurance records, physician statements, checks, employment application, and credit card receipts & solicitations.
“At The Farmers Bank we are dedicated to safeguarding your personal information to protect you from identity theft and scams,” said Karen F. Gregerson, President/CEO. “We are pleased to offer these annual events as a tool for both our customers and the community to be proactive in keeping their personal information secure.”
Please note the following changes: There is a maximum limit of 5 boxes/bags of paper per vehicle. The free community shred event will end once the shred truck is full. For further information about the Free Community Shred Day Event contact The Farmers Bank at 765-654-8731.
