LCBT announces 2016 Free Community Shred Days

Lapeer County Bank & Trust Co. (LCBT) will host its first Free Community Shred Day of 2016 on Saturday, April 2 at our Main Office location in downtown Lapeer.

Two Extreme Shreds shredding trucks will be on site at the Main Office of LCBT from 9 a.m.-noon, or until the trucks are full, for people to drop-off their shredding. Paperwork is deposited into a special bin. Once the bin is full, it is lifted and the contents are dropped into the mobile shredding truck. Each 96 gallon bin of paper takes less than three minutes to shred.

It is not necessary to remove staples, paper clips or bindings – the truck will shred through them. Please do not include compact discs, floppy disks, magazines or newspapers. Please limit your paperwork to be shredded to 10 banker’s boxes to help ensure everyone can take part in this service. This event is open to the entire community. You do not need to be a Lapeer County Bank & Trust Co. customer to participate.

This is the 11th year that LCBT has hosted Free Community Shred Days. There will be two more Shred Days in 2016; on Saturday, August 6, shredding will be accepted at the Imlay City office and on Saturday, October 8, shredding will be accepted at the Main Office in downtown Lapeer. All shred days run from 9 a.m.-noon.  More information is available on the Bank’s website,


Hi Danielle,

Is it two or ten boxes? Your post above states the limit is two but the announcement above references a limit of ten banker boxes. Please clarify. Thank you!

Hi merryannette,

My mistake, the limit is 10 boxes. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. It has been corrected in the post. Hope to see you this Saturday!

Is this the same number and size of trucks that came out last year when they had turn a lot of people away because they were full?

Danielle Chateauvert

Hi Nancy,
Yes, this is the same number of trucks as last year. However, we have politely asked for shredding to be kept to no more than 10 boxes per person. We did have people show up with quite a lot of shredding last year. This had never been a problem in the past. Hopefully the proposed limit, will mean room for everyone. 🙂 If anyone does have a large amount of shredding, and there is room in the trucks at the end of the event, we would be more than happy to shred it for you.
