All Racine-area residents are invited to safely get rid of all that unwanted paper and junk mail at North Shore Bank’s ninth annual Community Shredding Day.

From 9 to 11 a.m. on May 2, neighbors can bring outdated documents, junk mail, outdated insurance forms, old receipts and other personal paper items to this free event. Materials will be accepted at all North Shore branch locations, but those with larger amounts – two bags or more – need to visit the larger location at 5723 Durand Avenue, across the street from Regency Mall.

“We know that spring is the time of year when many people de-clutter their homes and sort through old personal documents,” said Craig Witz, vice president of branch administration for North Shore Bank, in a written release. “Our annual Community Shredding Day provides an opportunity for residents to reduce their financial paper trail and help protect against identity theft. We encourage everyone to take advantage of this free, secure service and drop off their outdated documents to any of our local branches.”

Everything that gets shredded is recycled. In 2014, the bank collected over 43 tons of paper.
