PHOENIX (KSAZ) -- Comerica Bank is hosting its fifth annual Shred Day in Phoenix on October 27.
In partnership with Iron Mountain, St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance and Phoenix Police Department, the bank hosts the valley's largest free shredding event.
The event is designed to securely destroy and recycle sensitive documents to help reduce the risk of identify theft.
Recommended sensitive documents to shred range from old bank statements, tax returns that are 7 years and older, medical bills, utility and credit card statements, as well as pre-approved credit card offers.
Comerica says there is no limit to the amount of paper you can bring to shred. There will be a dedicated area for large loads where trucks and even trailers full of paper are welcome to shred it up.
While this is not required, St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance encourages that you bring non-perishable food items or cash to donate.
Comerica says last year's Shred Day destroyed almost 59,000 pounds of paper.
The event is a community-wide, one-day only and in front of Comerica Theatre on Saturday, October 27 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
