CLINTON — A Clinton bank will provide document shredding this weekend.
The free service will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday at Citizens First Bank’s office at 1442 Lincoln Way.
This is the 10th year the bank has offered this service, Citizens First Marketing Director Paula Mayer said.
“Identity theft and fraud are constant challenges, so we plan to maintain this as an ongoing service,” Mayer said. “We are helping consumers learn how to protect themselves, and at the same time, helping them get rid of any documents containing personal information.”
The community is welcome to bring personal data for confidential destruction. Anything that may contain personal identifying information such as Social Security numbers, address, date of birth or passwords are items that are likely to be shredded. Other items include canceled checks, check registers, bank statements or receipts, loan documents, mortgage documents, brokerage statements, school records, credit card, mortgage and finance solicitations, credit card statements, contracts, personal business papers and credit applications.
This service is intended for individuals, and not for businesses.
