Veridian’s Shred Days Helps Community Safely Destroy 65,000 lbs. of Sensitive Documents

WATERLOO, Iowa (October 8, 2021) – Veridian Credit Union hosted mobile shred trucks at five Community Shred Day events across Iowa and eastern Nebraska in recent weeks. An estimated 2,360 people shredded 65,000 pounds of sensitive documents in Ankeny, Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Omaha and Waterloo to help protect their identities from fraud.

"We host Community Shred Days to offer a convenient way to shred unwanted documents that contain your personal information," said Veridian's public relations strategist Ashtin Hotek. "We're happy to offer the events as a free service to our communities and grateful that they’re always well attended.”

The shredded material is recycled into commercial-grade paper products. Since Veridian’s first Community Shred Day in 2009, the events have shredded 1.2 million pounds of documents, saving an estimated 9,800 trees and 1,700 cubic yards of landfill space.

Veridian will host another series of Community Shred Days in the spring. Those dates and other details will be available at veridiancu.org/shred.

Veridian Credit Union, founded in 1934 in Waterloo, Iowa, is a not-for-profit financial cooperative owned by its members. The credit union offers a full range of business and consumer financial services with more than 900 employees and 30 branches across Iowa and eastern Nebraska.
