The free event allows community members to securely dispose of sensitive documents and electronics
Redwood Credit Union invites the local community to securely shred old financial statements and other sensitive documents at its first-ever Lake County Shred-a-Thon. The event will be held at Lower Lake High School, 9430 Lake Street on Saturday, May 14, 2022, from 9 a.m. to noon, and will feature free document shredding provided by Shred-It and electronic waste (e-waste) collection by Conservation Corps North Bay.
“We’re thrilled to bring one of our most popular events to the Lake County community and offer this free service to help people securely dispose of their sensitive documents and e-waste,” said Becky Perez, RCU’s Lower Lake 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 standard-sized 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 the Lake County Child Care Planning Council, a group committed to ensuring the availability and accessibility of high-quality child care for the families and children of the community.
