Comerica and Iron Mountain team up to provide FREE document shredding services 6/15 LIVONIA

Comerica Bank Helps Metro Detroiters Protect Against Identity Theft During Shred Day

Comerica Bank and Iron Mountain to host sixth annual FREE community Shred Day on June 15th Metro Detroiters are asked to bring nonperishable food items to benefit Gleaners Food Bank.

Comerica Bank and Iron Mountain Incorporated have partnered to host the sixth annual community Shred Day at Comerica’s Livonia Operations Center located at 39200 6 Mile Road (6 Mile & Haggerty) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 15th.

Last year, more than 12 million adults became victims of identity theft. Shred Day is designed to help prevent metro Detroiters from becoming victims and to raise awareness about proper recycling methods. Shredding personal documents is one of the most effective ways to prevent sensitive information from making it into the wrong hands.

Iron Mountain will shred boxes or bags of paper documents at the event, which is free and open to the public.

After being securely destroyed, all shredded material will be made into pulp and recycled. “Comerica Bank is pleased to partner with Iron Mountain for the sixth consecutive year to offer such an important service free of charge to metro Detroiters,” said Linda Forte, senior vice president of Business Affairs, Comerica Bank.

“It’s our hope that Shred Day not only raises awareness of the seriousness of identity theft, but also helps prevent people from becoming victims. Forte notes that this year, there will be volunteers from Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan onsite to collect donations of nonperishable food items. “We encourage everyone to help the community while they’re protecting their identity,” she explains.
