Approximately 2,850 individuals dropped off unwanted personal documents for shredding. The documents were destroyed on site by Iron Mountain. The shredded remnants were then taken to be recycled.
Community shredding events play an essential role in helping to protect people from identity theft and other related crimes. Documents containing sensitive information, such as someone’s Social Security number, are often targeted by people looking to commit fraud. Since 2006, shredding events held by Golden 1 have destroyed more than 597,000 pounds of confidential documents containing such information.
"The Golden 1 Credit Union is committed to helping protect the identities of people in the community," says Donna A. Bland, Golden 1’s President and CEO. "Events like this help keep confidential information out of the wrong hands."
The Golden 1 Credit Union is California’s leading credit union, with more than 80 branches, $7.7 billion in assets and 600,000 members.
This credit union is federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration.
