We Shredded 6,500 Pounds of Paper!

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

A steady stream of people arrived to shred their old documents last Saturday during our Community Shred Day event.

By noon the truck was full with over 6,500 pounds of shredded paper! It was our pleasure to help many in the community protect their identity and rid their basements and closets of old documents with confidential information.

Kick off your spring cleaning by clearing out all of those old tax documents, confidential papers and any other paperwork that you should not just throw out in the trash. Hunziker & Associates, Realtors & Bankers Trust invite all of our customers and friends to bring your items to be shredded to our office at 105 South 16th Street, Ames on Saturday, April 23. A truck from Shred-It will be on site to shred your documents.

With so much emphasis being put on security both in terms of our identity and our finances it is important to ensure that every effort is made to make the identity thief’s job as difficult as possible. One way of doing this is to shred all documents that may contain information about you or members of your family which may allow the identity thief to build up a picture of either you as an individual or any other member of your family.

We will have reusable grocery bags for the first 200 customers that bring in items to shred.
