Got a box full of papers and documents etc. that need to be destroyed, take them into Lapeer County Bank & Trust Company and their first Free Community Shred Day of 2014 on Saturday, March 15. A Cintas shredding truck will be on site at the Main Office of LCBT on Nepessing Street from 9 a.m.-noon for people to drop off their shredding.

Paperwork is deposited into a special bin. Once the bin is full, it is wheeled to the mobile shredding truck, where it is lifted to the mobile shredding truck and dumped in. Each 96 gallon bin of paper takes less than three minutes to shred. It is not necessary to remove staples, paper clips or bindings – the truck will shred through them. Please do not include compact discs, floppy disks, magazines or newspapers.

This event is open to the entire community. You do not need to be a Lapeer County Bank & Trust Co. customer to participate.

This is the 8th year that LCBT has hosted Free Community Shred Days. In total, more than 100 tons of paper has been shredded. There will be two more Shred Days in 2014; on Saturday, May 17, shredding will be accepted at the Main Office in downtown Lapeer and on Saturday, Sept. 20, shredding will be accepted at the Imlay City office. All shred days run from 9 a.m.-noon.
