Bradford National Bank in Highland, located at 1100 Mercantile Drive, will hold a secure shredding and recycling day from 9 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 21.
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.

The event is being held in conjunction with Highland Recycling and Shredding, which is a member of the National Association for Information Destruction and licensed and bonded to securely dispose of confidential documents.
Randy Alderman, security officer at Bradford National Bank, said shredding old financial documents is a great way to prevent identity theft.
