Alpine Bank joins in document shredding event

Alpine Bank and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation have joined in hosting an event offering free document shredding.

The event is set for 8 to 11 a.m. April 26 at the Alpine Bank locations at 225 N. Fifth St. and 2424 Patterson Road in Grand Junction. Colorado Document Security will shred all documents on site. 

Participants are encouraged to donate one canned food item per box of documents to shred to benefit the Food Bank of the Rockies. Participants are asked to limit their shredding to four file-sized boxes per household. 

“One of the best strategies to reduce the risk of identity theft is to safely and securely destroy documents containing personal information,” said Ron Sloan, director of the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.

Carolee Hawkins, regional marketing director for Alpine Bank, said “Participants will be able to watch the destruction of their documents and leave with the peace of mind knowing their personal information will not get into the wrong hands,”

Once the documents are shredded they will be recycled.

“Alpine Bank’s environmental policy encourages community participation in our environmental efforts.  The shred event offers a valuable service to the community and ensures what might have ended up in a landfill is recycled,” said Clay Tufly, regional president of Alpine Bank.

For more information about the free document shredding event, call 254-2734.
