PLYMOUTH, Mich. (June 19, 2013) – Community Financial Credit Union is encouraging its members and other consumers to recycle their sensitive financial documents and keep their identities safe at the same time.
Community Financial is hosting its annual “Shred It Day” event on Saturday, June 29 from 2 – 4:30 p.m. at the Community Financial branches in Plymouth, located at 500 South Harvey Street and Canton Center, at 6355 N. Canton Center Road.
Local residents are encouraged to bring their sensitive materials to shred safely and securely. There is a limit of two shopping bags or bankers boxes of materials per car at the event.
“More and more people are looking for ways to protect not just the environment, but also their identities from thieves,” said Sarah Cousineau, marketing manager for Community Financial. “By providing a place to safely destroy and recycle their documents, we are helping them to accomplish both goals.”
In recent years, Community Financial has continued to invest in environmentally responsible banking options including eStatments and eReceipts to which deliver transaction receipts and statements via email instead of paper:
· Online bill pay (ePay), so members may pay their bills without writing checks or using stamps.
· Establishing an eClub for members who make transactions electronically.
