Shred old, confidential documents free at bank

Bank of American Fork hosts shred day at branches in Riverton, Lehi, Spanish Fork

Do you have a backlog of confidential documents that you want to get rid of? On June 10, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. to noon, Bank of American Fork customers and non-customers can bring their documents to the Riverton, Lehi or Spanish Fork branches to be shredded by Shred-it shredding services.

At Bank of American Fork, we care about your safety. One of the ways you can protect your identity is by properly destroying unneeded documents that have personal information on them, including documents that are out-of-date or documents you have saved electronically. Make sure you know the recommended amount of time to keep hard copies of important documents. You may be able to find the time period for keeping different types of documents with the respective organizations—for example, you might find the recommended amount of time to keep tax documents at www.irs.gov.

At Bank of American Fork’s shred day, customers may have up to five boxes of documents shredded (beyond five, we ask that you wait in line again if other customers are waiting) and will be able to watch items being shredded by a camera on the side of the shred truck. Shred-it can also provide free dated certifications of destruction.

Please note, the following can go into the shred truck: computer paper, colored paper, staples, paperclips, black binder clips, hanging file folders, magazines, phone books, spiral notebooks, two-part equi-fasteners, checks, brass fasteners, brochures and rubber bands. We will not be able to shred: cardboard, carbon paper, plastics, three-ring binders, microfiche or food wrappers. Small amounts of compact discs and cassettes are acceptable.

All paper shredded by Shred-it will be recycled. For every ton of paper recycled, 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, 6,993 gallons of water and 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space will be saved.

Remember to invite your friends and family to come on Saturday, June 10 from 9:00 a.m. to noon at Bank of American Fork’s Riverton, Lehi or Spanish Fork branches. Find the addresses online at www.bankaf.com.
