Shred Day

Free, secure document shredding at SCU

Take advantage of a safe, secure, and efficient way to destroy your old documents. Stop by any of our branches on Shred Day, and our partner, Iron Mountain, will be on-hand to destroy your unwanted documents, free of charge!

Can't make it to Shred Day? 

Stop by any branch between July 4 and September 29 to drop off your unwanted documents in the locked collection bins. If you have larger quantities of documents to shred, please visit us on Shred Day so we have space in our collection bins to accommodate all members.
