Heartland Bank to host Community Shred Day

DeKALB – Heartland Bank and Trust Co. will host a free Community Shred Day from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 14, at its 913 S. Fourth St. branch in DeKalb. The event may end earlier than scheduled if the shred truck fills to capacity.

Local residents and businesses are invited to bring personal documents for secure, on-site shredding.

A mobile shred unit will be on hand to destroy documents. People will be able to watch their documents being shredded through the unit’s observation window. Items with staples and paper clips can be shredded.

Properly disposing of personal documents is one way for people to protect themselves from identity theft. The Federal Trade Commission recommends shredding sensitive documents such as charge receipts, old utility bills, copies of credit applications, insurance forms, physician statements, unused checks, bank statements and expired charge cards.
