We understand that protecting your identity is important and that’s why we are having our second shred day of the year!

Protect yourself from identity theft — and even help make the planet a little greener — by securely disposing your sensitive documents. Bring your documents to the GECU Operations Center and we’ll shred and recycle them free of charge!*

WHY SHOULD I SHRED UNWANTED DOCUMENTS?

Identity protection — When you shred your personal information, you are getting ahead in protecting your identity from criminals.

Sustainability — Shredding and recycling help us save our planet. Your shredded documents will be recycled, which helps reduce waste.

  • Each ton of recycled paper can save …
    • 7,000 gallons of water
    • 17 trees
    • 380 gallons of oil
    • Three cubic yards of landfill space
    • 4,000 kW of energy
    • 60 pounds of air pollution

Save space — Shredding can allow you to save space by removing documents that you no longer need.

Peace of mind — Rest easy knowing that you are protecting yourself and your loved ones by shredding material that contains sensitive information.
