Shred Any Possibility of Identity Theft

Document Disposal Days Scheduled for May and September

On Saturday, May 18, we will host our popular Document Disposal Day in the parking lot at our Beecher location, from 9:00-11:00 a.m. This free event is open to individuals and businesses who have unneeded confidential papers that they would like destroyed.

Destroying confidential information is not only a good idea for security purposes; it may also be legally required for many individuals and businesses. According to the FTC’s DISPOSAL RULE, added in 2005 as part of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003 (FACTA) “any person who maintains or otherwise possesses consumer information for a business purpose must properly destroy discarded consumer information”. The FTC’s FACTA DISPOSAL RULE further states that every person and/or business, “must properly dispose of such information by taking reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized access to or use of the information in connection with its disposal.” Shredding is one of the recommended ways to dispose of sensitive information.

All types of office papers are accepted, including file folders, green bar paper, carbonless paper, letterhead, envelopes, etc. Staples, paper clips and rubber bands do not have to be removed, however paper should be removed from metal-type binders such as 3-ring binders or metal fastener folders. For more information, please contact the bank at 708-946-2246 or 708-258-0530.

First Community Bank and Trust will hold another Document Disposal Day on Saturday, September 14 at our Peotone facility.
