TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Have a lot of documents lying around that you’d rather not trash while still intact? Well, then you are in luck.
First Financial Bank along with Data Management Shredding is providing an opportunity for free shredding of confidential documents and papers Saturday, April 23 from 9-11 a.m. at the First Financial Meadows banking center.
Data Management will have a shredding truck set up in the parking lot to securely shred documents on site. Volunteers from the bank will assist in loading and unloading bags and boxes from the vehicles of participants.
Up to 5 bags or boxes of documents will be shredded for free per person.
Examples of documents that the Federal Trade Commission recommends that you shred are bank statements, canceled checks, medical forms, paid utility bills, credit applications, and insurance forms, to name a few. These kinds of documents could yield a treasure trove of information if they fell into the hands of thieves.
In addition to paper, the bank will also be accepting worn, frayed or faded American flags. All flags collected will be given to VFW Post 972 for respectful disposal at a flag retirement ceremony.
