Stay in your car – let us do the work

For the safety of our staff and the community, we are setting up contactless shredding. Drive up, pop open your truck and we'll take care of the rest while you remain safely in your car. You can bring up to three bags or boxes of documents to be shredded. If you bring your papers in plastic trash bags, leave them untied. We can't shred those bags, so we'll have to empty them. If you bring your documents in cardboard boxes, don't drive off too soon. We'll need to give those back to you. Have old CDS or diskettes? We can shred those too.

Learn the seven secrets of shred day

Shredding: who, how, why

Shred days are a free event open to everyone – you don’t need to be a member of Oregon State Credit Union, you just need to gather the documents you want to shred. No need to remove staples, paper clips or bindings. You don’t even need to get out of your car. Just drive up and we’ll take care of the rest. Your sensitive information will be shredded onsite. Limit of three boxes per vehicle.

  • There are many reasons why you should shred documents that contain personal information. One in four people have experienced some form of identity theft. Shredding confidential information helps protect against identity theft. It's also good for the environment. Annually, people who bring their papers to our Shred Days prevent tons of material from being disposed in the landfill. In 2023 our shred days saved 2,038 cubic yards of air pollution and 111 cubic yards of landfill.

  • Shred even less -- sign up for paperless electronic statements after you enroll in online banking.

Supporting local food shares

As of 2020, 9.8% of Oregonians reported that they were struggling to afford food. In effort to help those in need of food, each shred event will have a food drive to support that specific county's food share. Non-perishable canned or boxed food, or cash donations will be accepted. Bring an item and help your neighbors in need.

Thank you for your support at our 2023 shred days.
