Bank to host paper-shredding event May 10

The Bank of Sun Prairie will host a paper-shredding event to help the community safely recycle their unwanted personal documents, according to a release.

Community members can bring up to five boxes, three 13-gallon plastic bags or 50 pounds of paper to be shredded and recycled by Pellitteri Waste Systems, officials said.

“We know it can be difficult to safely dispose of documents that include personal or sensitive information, so we’re offering an easy way to recycle any unwanted papers,” said Deb Krebs, with the Bank of Sun Prairie. “It’s really a win-win. We can safely discard personal documents and at the same time help save a tree.”

All papers shredded at the event will be bailed and shipped to a paper factory in Wisconsin that will repurpose the materials into other products like paper towels, napkins and tissues, according to the release.

For every 200 pounds of paper that is shredded and recycled, one tree is left standing, officials said.
