Community shreds and recycles over 20 tons of sensitive documents

WARNER ROBINS, GA (May 2, 2014) — Central Georgia residents recently shredded 41,250 pounds, or 20.63 tons, of documents containing sensitive material at Robins Federal Credit Union’s popular Shred Day events.

Five Shred Day events were held at Robins Federal Credit Union’s Bluebird Boulevard branch in Ft. Valley, Perry Parkway branch in Perry, Zebulon Road branch in Macon, West Clinton Street branch in Gray, and Watson Boulevard branch in Warner Robins.

Shred Day is a semiannual event with a dual purpose – to protect the Middle Georgia community from identity theft and to protect the environment. Members of the community are invited to shred personal information, including financial records, receipts and prescriptions. All shredded documents are then recycled.

Robins Federal Credit Union is a local non-profit financial cooperative with nineteen branches in central Georgia. Robins Federal currently provides financial services to over 155,000 members, with assets exceeding $1.9 billion. Membership is open to anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in the 16 counties Robins Federal serves.
