Lakestone announces 2017 Free Community Shred Days

Lakestone Bank & Trust (Lakestone) will host its first Free Community Shred Day of 2017 on Saturday, April 15, at the Main Office location in downtown Lapeer.

Two Xtreme Shreds, LLC. shredding trucks will be on site at the Lakestone Main Office 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. Items that should not be included are: compact discs, floppy disks, magazines or newspapers. Please limit 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 Lakestone Bank & Trust customer to participate.

This is the 12th consecutive year the Bank has hosted Free Community Shred Days. There will be three more Shred Days in 2017: on Saturday, May 20, shredding will be accepted at the Capac office; on August 19, shredding will be accepted at the Imlay City office (on M-53); on Saturday, October 14, shredding will be accepted at the Armada office; and on Saturday, October 21, shredding will be accepted at the Lapeer Downtown office. All shred days run from 9 a.m.-noon or until the trucks are full. More information is available on the Bank’s website,
