More than 580 people attacked their paper clutter and protected themselves from identity theft sharks by participating in SHREDNADO Saturday, Sept. 17, at CommonWealth One Federal Credit Union in Alexandria and Harrisonburg, Va. Participants shredded more than 21,710 lbs. of paper.
CommonWealth One's semi-annual free community shredding events help credit union members and the community get their sensitive personal documents shredded and recycled securely, including old tax records, bills, paycheck stubs and more.
SHREDNADO was hosted Sept. 17 at CommonWealth One's Main Branch in Alexandria, Virginia, at 4875 Eisenhower Avenue and simultaneously at the Harrisonburg Regional Branch in Harrisonburg, Virginia, at 42 Terri Drive.
This event was free and open to the public.
Due to high demand at previous events, the credit union increased capacity with two shred trucks at each location.
The next community shred day from CommonWealth One will be in April 2017.
