Community Shred Day

Saturday, May 20
9 am - noon
Security Bank front parking lot


Safely dispose of your old documents for your privacy and protection.

“It’s important to not toss personal identifiable mail and documents in the trash, as thieves can use this information to steal your identity, the identity of an employee and more,” said Lynette Lambert, Security Bank SBA loan officer.

Examples of items to shred:

  • Paid utility, credit card and medical bills

  • Employee records

  • Old pay stubs, bank statements, investment documents 

  • Items with personal identifiable information (old credit reports/histories and IDs)

  • Expired permanent records (passports, driver’s licenses, insurance policies)

  • Canceled and voided checks, including checks deposited through mobile deposit

  • Tax forms and tax-related documents older than 10 years

  • Items with a signature (old leases, contracts, letters)

  • Prescription labels


Never Shred

  • Permanent records

  • Birth certificates, adoption papers, social security cards

  • Marriage or divorce decrees

  • Auto and home deeds

Be sure to keep your permanent records safely locked in a file cabinet or in a bank safe deposit box.
