PRINCETON — Heartland Bank and Trust Co. will host a community shred day from 8:30 to 11 a.m. June 21 at its 2101 N. Main St., Princeton, office.

Local residents and businesses can bring personal documents for secure, onsite shredding. COPS, a service provider of document storage and disposal, will have its mobile shred unit on hand to destroy documents. People will be able to watch their document being shredded through the unit’s observation window. Items with staples and paper clips can also be shredded.

The Federal Trade Commission recommends shredding sensitive documents such as charge receipts, old utility bills, copies of credit applications, insurance forms, physician statements, unused checks, bank statements and expired charge cards to help protect against identity theft.
