National Bank & Trust shreds 14 tons

By on June 5, 2009

ELBURN—A record 28,000 pounds (14 tons) of paper was shredded at The National Bank & Trust Company’s 4th annual Community Shred Day held on May 16 at the Main, DeKalb Market Square and Elburn branch locations.

Area residents were invited to bring personal documents to a “shredding drive-through,” where they were promptly destroyed safely and for free by Accurate Document Shredding, a mobile shredding specialist. NB&T employees were on hand to unload boxes and bags, so attendees did not have to leave the comfort of their vehicles.

“We are pleased to be able to offer much-needed identity theft protection and recycling service to the communities we serve,” said Michael Cullen, NB&T President and CEO. “The overwhelming response demonstrates how valuable this service is.”

14 tons of shred is equivalent to saving 295 cubic feet of landfill space, 238 trees, 5,320 gallons of oil, and 98,000 gallons of water.

NB&T plans to hold another shred event sometime this fall.
