Redwood Credit Union Shred-a-Thon Provides Secure Document Shredding to Marin Residents

The Redwood Credit Union Marin Shred-a-Thon team

Approximately 700 Locals Attended Free Event

Novato, Calif - Redwood Credit Union (RCU) hosted a free document shredding event at Sutter Novato Community Hospital on Saturday, June 1, 2019. Approximately 700 local residents brought old financial documents and other confidential paperwork—33,500 lbs in total—to be shredded by Shred-IT, which provided on-site shredding trucks for the credit union’s annual Shred-a-Thon event.

"Shredding sensitive documents is one of the best precautions people can take against identity theft, so we were happy to once again provide this service to our community." said Lindsay Jones, regional vice president of branch experience.

RCU also offered e-waste disposal at the event, through Conservation Corps North Bay, and collected 3,616 lbs. of old electronics to be recycled.

Additionally, RCU collected $2,163 in monetary donations at the event to benefit SchoolsRule Marin, a coalition of 20 school foundations that helps fund literacy, technology, and art programs for every public school student in Marin County. RCU donates to SchoolsRule every time a Marin resident makes a purchase using an RCU debit or credit card. Details of the program are available at

RCU will be holding additional Shred-a-Thons this summer in Napa, Sonoma, and Mendocino Counties. To learn more, visit
