Royal Credit Union announces 2022 shred events

EAU CLAIRE, WI (April 26, 2022) — With spring cleaning in full swing, you are sure to have come across confidential documents that you no longer need. Royal Credit Union will be hosting shred events at several Royal offices during the month of May. Shred Days are an opportunity for Members and the general public to properly dispose of their personal documents and files for free. Royal is partnering with document management and destruction companies, Shred Away and Shred-it, to safely dispose of documents.  This year all of our shred events will be drive-up only. Drive-up events will be held in the parking lots of our offices; attendees will drive through the line and Royal team members will unload their items for them.  A limit of two brown paper grocery bags or one file-sized box per car will be enforced at all events to ensure everyone has a chance to shred their most critical documents.  It is recommended to limit the documents you bring to those that contain confidential information such as social security numbers, financial account numbers, or other secure information.  Acceptable items to shred include personal records, bills, receipts, bound paper, file folders, and CDs.

At Royal, our core purpose is to create a positive impact in the lives we touch. This purpose is the driving force behind everything we do and we go beyond our credit union Members and team members to make a positive impact by giving back in our wider community.  Because of this, Shred Days are free and open to all community members. By bringing your confidential items to a Royal Credit Union Shred Day event, you gain peace of mind knowing that your documents are being securely destroyed.
