Due to an amazing response to ACNB Bank’s Annual Community Shred Event publicity efforts, we are now at capacity for the shred truck this year. In its 13th year, this event is very popular because it serves as a fundraiser for United Way of Adams County and the Bag the Bounty Food Drive. Please make a note on your calendar to call ACNB Bank’s Customer Contact Center in August to reserve your preferred time slot for the 2020 Community Shred Event that will take place in September. Reservations are made on a first come, first serve basis. Thank you for expressing interest in participating in this activity and we hope to see you next year.
It’s time to clean out those old documents and files and bring them to ACNB Bank’s Community Shred Event! This event is open to ACNB Bank customers and Adams County residents and takes place Saturday, September 21, from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon at the ACNB Corporation Operations Center parking lot located at 100 V-Twin Drive, Gettysburg (off Route 30, east of Gettysburg). You can bring up to five boxes of documents (based upon a measurement of approximately 11” x 11” x 18”) per household. A “donation” of $2.00 per box will be accepted to benefit the United Way of Adams County.
If you would like to participate, you MUST register in advance by calling the ACNB Bank Customer Contact Center at 717-334-3161, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. At that time, our staff will request that you sign up for a time slot to drop off your documents and for the number of boxes you plan to bring. The shred truck reached full capacity last year, so a reservation is essential. Please note we are unable to take any reservations through the Bank’s Facebook page or via email.
You’ll enjoy peace of mind once you’ve cleaned out files of old confidential financial records, legal documents, medical records, tax records, credit card receipts and any other personal information. 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, Maryland. 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. To make things easy, documents do not need to be sorted, and staples and paper clips do not need to be removed.
When you arrive at Community Shred, you may stay in your car since the Bank’s staff will remove the items and place them in the All-Shred unit on your behalf. Materials will be removed from your car once it’s your turn to pull up next to the All-Shred truck.
As you’re 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. If you choose to bring food, please check the expiration dates on the items to make sure they have not expired.
Make plans today to shred your old confidential documents at ACNB Bank’s Community Shred on Saturday, September 21. Call the Bank to register by Tuesday, September 17, by calling 717-334-3161 or toll free 1-888-334-ACNB (2262), Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
