Bank to host shred day

April 28 Newton residents can have their unwanted documents and papers shredded in a secure environment, for free, at Midland National Bank’s semi-annual Community Shred Day.

The public is invited to bring receipts, invoices and other personal documents to the Midland National Bank parking lot on the west side of the main bank from 9 to 11 a.m. Please enter off Sixth Street.

Destroying documents with personal information, such as old credit card invoices, utility bills, tax documents and bank statements, is one way to thwart identity thieves.

Document Resources, a division of Underground Vaults and Storage, will be providing the shredding service.

Please, no glass, food, plastic or hazardous material. There is a 5 box limit per household.

Contact Midland National Bank, 316-283-1700, for more information.
