Sacramento, Calif., April 2, 2012—The Golden 1 Credit Union will host a free shredding event on Saturday, May 5, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Golden 1 Operations Center, located at 8945 Cal Center Drive, near the intersection of Watt Avenue and Folsom Boulevard in Sacramento.
The public is invited to drive up and drop off up to five banker's boxes full of their confidential and personal documents at this event. Golden 1 has teamed up with Iron Mountain to handle the shredding, and the shredded remnants will be recycled. Shredding important documents that contain any type of personal or confidential information such as anything that has a signature, account number, Social Security number, or medical or legal information (plus credit offers) is one way to keep your private information out of the wrong hands.
Last fall, Golden 1 safely disposed of a record-setting 167,000 pounds of sensitive material for more than 3,000 individuals at its community shred event. "Golden 1 is excited to provide yet another free shred event to the public," said Donna A. Bland, President and CEO of Golden 1. "Helping people prevent identity theft and other types of fraud is one more way we help our communities and it gives us a great sense of satisfaction."
The Golden 1 Credit Union is California's leading credit union, with 83 branches, $7.5 billion in assets and more than 600,000 members.
