Alliance Bank is inviting customers and non-customers alike to dispose of old ATM receipts, deposit slips, credit card receipts, billing statements and pay stubs safely and securely by bringing them to its Camillus (West Genesee Street and Kasson Road) branch for shredding from 9 a.m. until noon on Saturday, April 21.
Alliance Bank is promoting what it calls "Community Shred Day" at five of its 29 area branches. Special shred trucks from Shred-it, the world's leading on-site document destruction company, will be on hand to receive documents for shredding, no questions asked.
"With tax season over and spring cleaning underway, it's the perfect time to shred the documents you've been worried about; the kind of documents that, left in a shoe box or tossed in the trash, make you vulnerable to identity theft," said Steve Cacchio, senior vice president for Alliance Bank.
Shredded documents not only ensure personal security, but are environmentally friendly. Shred-it turns documents into confetti-size pieces of paper and recycles them into household paper products.
The Alliance Bank Community Shred Day also features radio remotes by favorite on-air personalities at all five branch locations as well as free coffee and donuts in the branch.
The Community Shred Day kicks off an Alliance Bank checking account promotion that offers a free ROYAL Model JS55 paper shredder for opening a new checking account and a $50 incentive for signing up for direct deposit.
"Whether you're a customer or not, whether you open an account or not, we hope the public will take advantage of this no-strings-attached opportunity to shred sensitive documents that they no longer need to retain," Cacchio said.
