It’s time to clean out those old documents and files and take them to ACNB Bank’s Community Shred Event. This event is open to ACNB Bank customers and Adams County residents and takes place Saturday, Sept. 21, from 9 a.m. to noon at the ACNB Corporation Operations Center parking lot at 100 V-Twin Drive, Gettysburg.
Attendees can bring up to five boxes of documents per household. A donation of $2 per box will be accepted to benefit the United Way of Adams County.
To participate, register in advance by calling the ACNB Bank Customer Contact Center at 717-334-3161, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. At that time, ACNB staff will request people sign up for a time slot to drop off their documents and for the number of boxes people plan to take to the event. The shred truck reached full capacity last year, so a reservation is essential. ACNB is unable to take any reservations through the bank’s Facebook page or via email.
All the documents will be shredded securely at Community Shred by All-Shred Inc., an on-site document shredding and recycling company based in Frederick, Md. The shredding takes place inside a secure area within All-Shred’s truck. The shredded materials are then recycled and reused to manufacture household paper products. TDocuments do not need to be sorted, and staples and paper clips do not need to be removed.
When arriving at the community shred, people may stay in their vehicles and bank staff will remove the items and place them in the All-Shred unit. Materials will be removed from vehicles when it’s people’s turns to pull up next to the All-Shred truck.
While getting items together to shred, plan to also bring non-perishable food to donate to the United Way of Adams County’s “Bag the Bounty” food drive. Check the expiration dates on the items to make sure they have not expired.
