Carter County Bank Announces Contactless Community Shred Day

Carter County Bank will host their Annual Community Shred Day on Saturday, April 17. The free event, held at Elizabethton High School from 9 a.m. to noon, is open to the public. The event was created to allow residents to properly dispose of documents containing personally sensitive information, which will help prevent identity theft and fraud. This year’s event is contactless and more convenient for those who wish to participate. Citizens are asked to place their documents in a container and place it in the back seat or trunk and remain inside their vehicles when they arrive onsite. Volunteers will remove the items to be shredded to promote less contact.
 
“As a financial institution, we understand the importance of handling and destroying sensitive documents safely and securely,” said Andrew McKeehan, President of Carter County Bank. “Carter County Bank is committed to helping this community guard against identity theft and that’s why we continue to hold this free event every year,” said McKeehan.
 
Shred Pro will be on site from 9 a.m. to noon in the parking lot of Elizabethton High School. Any person who wishes to bring items for disposal will need to stay in their vehicle and follow on-site traffic signs. Items accepted for shredding include bills, check stubs, healthcare information, tax documents, financial statements, disks, CDs, legal documents, and other confidential information.
