North Shore Bank to hold Community Shredding Day on May 2
North Shore Bank will hold its third annual bank-wide Community Shredding Day on Saturday, May 2. People can stop by any of North Shore Bank’s 41 Wisconsin branches from 9 a.m. to noon to have outdated personal documents securely shredded. The event is free and open to the public.
Documents for shredding may include old bank statements and other papers listing bank account information, credit card statements and documents listing credit card numbers, credit applications, pre-approved credit offers, old paycheck stubs and documents listing Social Security numbers. While materials will be accepted at all North Shore Bank offices, those who have larger quantities of papers for shredding (up to two boxes) are encouraged to visit one of eight branches that will have large mobile shredders and shredding specialists on site. Those locations are:
- Brookfield Square – 15700 W. Bluemound Road in Brookfield
- Fox Point – 600 E. Green Tree Road in Fox Point
- Southridge – 5101 S. 76th St. in Greendale
- Westgate – 4923 Washington Ave. in Racine
- Grafton/Cedarburg – 2301 Wisconsin Avenue in Grafton (across from Sendik’s)
All shredded materials will then be recycled. In addition, the bank will provide information about how to prevent identity theft, what personal documents should be kept and for how long, green spring cleaning tips, and more. Additional information about the Community Shredding Day is available on the bank’s Web site at www.shredit.northshorebank.com and at any North Shore Bank office.
