Heartland Bank 7th Annual Community Shred Days

Heartland Bank and Trust Company will host its 7th Annual Community Shred Day on Sat., May 5th from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Heartland Bank is offering this shred service free of charge at its
3400 Court St. office in Pekin.

Local residents and businesses are invited to bring personal documents for secure, onsite shredding. COPS, a service provider of document storage and disposal, will have its mobile shred unit on hand to destroy documents onsite. People will be able to watch their documents being shredded through the unit’s observation window. Items with staples and paperclips can also 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.
