Memphis, TN (April 23, 2012) – In an effort to combat the growing problem of identity theft and fraud while helping to preserve our environment, Cadence Bank and Cintas® Document Management will sponsor the sixth-annual Community Shred Days. Memphis residents and businesses are invited to bring old and unwanted documents to Cadence Bank locations, where they will be securely destroyed free of charge.
The events are:
Wednesday, April 25th

Friday, April 27th
1516 Union Avenue

“Identity theft continues to be a problem that affects people and businesses across our community in many different ways,” said Tom Martin, President of Cadence Bank in Memphis. “One way Cadence Bank can help thwart identity theft is to give people and businesses an easy and effective way to destroy personal and confidential material. All they have to do is bring the material to a Cadence Bank branch on a designated Shred Day and it will be destroyed free of charge.’’
Individuals and businesses are encouraged to bring up to five boxes of unwanted paper material, such as old credit card statements, utility bills, payroll records, outdated bank and brokerage statements and trash-worthy tax documents. All material will be shredded on site by Cintas®.
It is not necessary to remove paper clips, staples, or bindings. However, the following materials cannot be shredded: CDs, floppy disks, aluminum cans, plastic bottles, magazines, newspapers and cardboard containers.
“Shredding unwanted documents not only helps curb identity theft, but also protects landfills from unnecessary usage and saves trees”, said Jose Madera, General Manager, Cintas Document Management. "We turn 100 percent of shredded paper into recycled material for re-use and all shredded paper is processed back into paper pulp."
Cadence Bank and Cintas® are proud to partner together to help safeguard against identity theft and give the community a chance to recycle old documents.
