Honor Credit Union Community Shred Day recycles over 3,000 pounds of paper

NEGAUNEE, MI (May 11, 2015) — Throughout the Community Shred Day that Honor Credit Union’s Negaunee branch hosted on May 1st, 2015, 3,015lbs of paper was safely and securely shredded and recycled! Country Mile Document Destruction was the document destruction company that shredded on site at the Community Shred Day.

Every Honor Credit Union Community Shred Day is open to both members and non-members, giving the community an opportunity to not only securely clear out their unwanted confidential papers, but also contribute to Honor’s environmentally conscious initiative to go paperless. Every community member that participated in the Negaunee shred day can be proud that they joined the movement to give back to our environment. Every single pound of paper that was brought in and recycled contributed to saving space in our landfills right here in Michigan. It is estimated that for every ton of paper recycled, 3 cubic yards of landfill space is saved. That means that in addition to the trees Honor CU’s Community Shred Day saved, we also saved landfill space! The recycling doesn’t stop here. Be on the lookout for dates and locations of 2016 Community Shred Days!

Honor Credit Union is proud to serve more than 55,000 members across the State of Michigan. Providing solutions for financial success and giving back to the communities they serve remain the driving forces behind Honor Credit Union. For more information call 800.442.2800, or visit
