Shred Day

Avoid the Dread and Shred!

We have teamed up with Iron Mountain to offer free, secure, confidential shredding for members. You can bring boxes of personal identifying documents such as financial statements, receipts, or old bills. Please remain in your vehicle and have your shred items ready in your trunk or the back seat when you arrive. We will have our AMOCO representatives greet you and shred the unwanted documents.

If you are looking for a way to give back to the the community, The Foundation For Hope Village will be in attendance collecting the following items:

Why Shred?

According to the Federal Trade Commission, about 9 million Americans have their identities stolen each year and “dumpster diving” or rifling through your trash cans for personal information, is a common tactic used by identity thieves.

The Attorney General’s Office suggests shredding credit card receipts, ATM receipts, pre-approved credit card or loan offers that you are not interested in, personal financial information such as monthly statements, and much more. Below is a list of items that can and cannot be shredded.

  • Bond, computer and copying paper
  • Adding machine tape
  • Envelope (with or without windows)
  • File folders
  • Accounting ledgers and letterhead faxes
  • NCR or coated paper and self-adhesive notes

Paper clips, rubber bands, staples, tape, adhesive labels, acco fasteners, and plastic tabs do not have to be removed.

  • Cellophane wrappers
  • Paper towels/napkin
  • Food of any kind
  • Phone books
  • Styrofoam cups/plates
  • Lunch bags
  • Newspapers
  • Aluminum cans, foil and metal ring binders
