Shred-a-Thon Helps More Than 350 Mendocino County Residents Protect Confidential Data
Ukiah, Calif - Redwood Credit Union (RCU) hosted a free document shredding event at its Ukiah branch on Saturday, July 13, 2019. Approximately 350 local residents brought old financial documents and other confidential
paperwork—15,000 lbs in total—to be safely shredded on site by Shred-IT. Approximately 1,410 lbs of electronic waste (e-waste) was also safely
disposed of by Conservation Corps North Bay.
“Shredding sensitive documents like old financial statements and bills 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 Todd Andrus, RCU’s
Ukiah branch manager.
The Humane Society of Inland Mendocino County collected $1,087 at the event and brought adoptable pets, several of which found homes that day.
RCU holds Shred-a-Thons annually in four of the communities it serves. There’s one more happening this year in Santa Rosa on August 10, 2019. To learn more, visit www.redwoodcu.org/shred.
