Free Community Shred Day and Food Bank Donation

Oregon Statue Credit Union also took in 1,837 pounds of food and another $1,100 in cash donations for the local Food Shares during the events.

Three annual Oregon State Credit Union Free Community Shred Days in Albany, Corvallis and Keizer served more than 1,800 residents with secure disposal of 57,743 pounds of sensitive documents this year. In addition, the credit union took in 1,837 pounds of food and another $1,100 in cash donations for the local Food Shares during the events.
 
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the collective shredding and recycling of paperwork at the three events saved more than 476 trees, 196,000 gallons of water, 92 cubic yards of landfill and more than 2,200 gallons of oil saved. It also prevented more than 1,680 cubic yards of pollutants from entering the atmosphere. The credit union matched the first $700 of cash donations dedicated to the Marion-Polk County Food Share or the Linn-Benton Food Share.
 
The credit union annually provides this community service where anyone can bring boxes of outdated documents such as old checks or outdated forms and statements with personal information. Documents are securely shredded onsite for free with the fleet of equipped trucks supplied by the credit union’s recycling partner. Learn more about the credit union’s Community Shred Day events.
 
Oregon State Credit Union is a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative, open to anyone who lives or works in 24 western and central Oregon counties. Learn more about Oregon State Credit Union.
