BROOKFIELD, Wis. – Following the opening of its brand-new Kenosha South branch, North Shore Bank today announced it will hold a one-day-only, free Community Shredding Day on Oct. 2 from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. at the Kenosha South branch, located at 3315 80th Street as part of its opening celebration. Additionally, people can pick up child ID Safety Kits and enjoy light refreshments.

“With the changing of seasons, we often see many people cleaning out their homes, including sorting through old documents. We want our customers and neighbors to do so in a smart, safe way, so we’re thrilled to offer this opportunity to our Kenosha community,” said Brian Bozek, vice president and district manager of for North Shore Bank.

The public is invited to drop off outdated, personal documents for secure shredding, with a limit of two boxes per vehicle. All shredded materials are recycled after collection. Acceptable material for shredding includes paper with staples and paper clips. Unacceptable materials include three/four ring binders and folders with metal strips or springs. These items need to be separated and thrown in the trash or reused. 

“Shredding financial papers and anything with your private personal information on it is a good practice to protect your privacy and identity,” added Bozek.
