Bradford National Bank, with locations in Greenville, Highland and Marine, is sponsoring two free shredding and recycling days at the bank.
The first will be held on Saturday, May 16 from 9 to11 a.m. in Greenville at the Bradford Community Building, and again on Saturday, May 23 from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Highland bank, located at 1100 Mercantile Drive.
The bank is inviting businesses and residents to bring old financial documents, canceled checks, bank statements, tax returns or investment documents to be securely destroyed and recycled. Items collected will be securely transported in locked containers to Highland Recycling and Shredding for destruction.
New this year, Highland Recycling and Shredding will accept computer hard drives for secure destruction at the Bradford National Bank event. All serial numbers are recorded; the physical hard drives are then shredded and then recycled.

Bradford National Bank held similar events at both locations and they were well received. The event is being held in conjunction with Highland Recycling and Shredding, who are members of the National Association for Information Destruction and are licensed and bonded to securely dispose of confidential documents.
Luke Harris, owner of the facility in Highland, said:, “Even a seemingly unimportant piece of paper may provide personal clues about you, a loved one, your business, or an employee. With identity theft running rampant, don’t take the chance of allowing vital information slip by undetected.”
