Honor Credit Union announces results from annual Free Community Shred days

BERRIEN SPRINGS, MI (December 13, 2017) — Honor Credit Union is proud to announce the success of its 2017 Free Community Shred Day campaign. As part of its green initiative, Honor was able to recycle 50,240 pounds of paper in 2017, the equivalent weight of over 12 large cars.

Honor held eight shred day events throughout its communities in the upper and lower peninsulas. During the free event, the community was invited to bring all their sensitive documents to the branch for a chance to shred it on the spot. This promotes the protection of personal information and a chance to recycle all unused papers. With the community’s help, each branch recycled over a ton of paper. Here are the results from each branch:

Dowagiac- 8,930 lbs.
Plainwell- 3,420 lbs.
Paw Paw- 4,940 lbs.
Berrien Springs- 5,700 lbs.
Battle Creek- 3,800 lbs.
Coldwater-5,130 lbs.
St. Joseph- 14,820 lbs.
Gwinn- 3,500 lbs.

Honor Credit Union is dedicated to going green by providing its members with online and mobile banking, the opportunity to sign up for E-Statements, and have paperless transactions. The 2018 Free Community Shred Day schedule will be released in February.
