North Shore Bank to Host Free Community Shredding Day Bank-wide on May 7

Public invited to bring in personal documents for free, secure shredding

BROOKFIELD, Wis. – North Shore Bank today announced it will hold its 10th annual Community Shredding Day on Saturday, May 7, from 9 to 11 a.m. The public is invited to visit any of North Shore Bank’s area branches to drop off outdated, personal documents for secure shredding. Community Shredding Day is free and open to the public and will take place rain or shine.

Paper materials will be accepted at all North Shore Bank branches, but those with large quantities of documents (1-2 bags) are encouraged to visit one of the following offices that will have special shredding trucks on site collecting materials. Those locations are:

At the Brookfield Square office at 10 a.m., an expert will be on hand from the U.S. Postal Inspection Service to talk about the dangers of identity theft and how the community can protect their private information from falling into the wrong hands by reducing their financial paper trails, securely disposing of outdated documents and more.

“We know that spring is the time of year when many people de-clutter their homes and sort through old personal documents,” said Sue Doyle, senior vice president of branch administration for North Shore Bank. “Our annual Community Shredding Day provides an opportunity for residents to reduce their financial paper trail and help protect against identity theft. We encourage everyone to take advantage of this free, secure service and drop off their outdated documents to any of our local branches.”

Last year the bank collected more than 43 tons of paper documents for secure shredding. All shredded materials are recycled after collection. For more information on how to prevent identity theft, reduce your financial paper trail, and decide what to keep or toss, visit
