Shred-it Day is on Saturday, April 20, 2019, Wilmington Savings Bank, in collaboration with Wilmington City Schools, offers a FREE Shred-It Day for the community. At the event, the public may safely discard personal documents to protect important information and avoid identity theft. Shredding and destroying certain personal documents is critical in this day and age. Disposing of your documents securely can prevent identity theft and protect personal and financial information.
You should shred documents that contain your date of birth, account numbers, social security numbers and your signature. Some examples include:
- Address labels from junk mail and magazines
- Old bank statements
- Reconciled ATM receipts
- Canceled and voided checks
- Paid credit card statements
- Expired passports and driver’s licenses
- Documents containing passwords or PIN numbers
Do NOT destroy documents such as birth certificates, Social Security cards, wills and life insurance policies. Keep those in a safe place like a bank safe deposit box.
The FREE Community Shred-It Day takes place 8 a.m. until 11 a.m. April 20th in the Wilmington High School parking lot, 300 Richardson Place, Wilmington, OH 45177.
