Shred Day

We are pleased to help protect our members and friends from Identity Theft by offering a free shred day that is safe and secure to dispose of your confidential documents. Bring any documents that contain personal and private information to our East Branch on Saturday, May 15 from 9 to 11 a.m. where Shredding Solutions will be on hand with their mobile shred truck. We will offer free shredding service in Kearney on Thursday, June 3rd all day with additional shred bins on site.

No Limits

There is no limit to the amount you can bring but please note that this is not for general recycling so items like newspapers, phone books, catalogs or other items that don’t contain private information should not be included.

Bring Disposable Containers

Small, disposable containers are preferred - paper or plastic bags, or small cardboard boxes. If you want your container back, know that you do so at your own risk as we cannot sanitize in between each drop off and it slows down the process to have to return containers.

Wear a mask

Our volunteers will be masked and we ask that you do the same. We will come to your car and unload. Everything will go to the truck and will be shredded on site in Lincoln.

What to Shred

In general, to protect yourself from Identity Thieves, we recommend that you shred documents that contain account numbers, social security numbers, medical information and personal information such as date of birth.

Other Ways to Protect Yourself

  • Sign up for Online Statements which you can access safely and securely
