Synovus to Host Free Contactless Community Shred Day

COLUMBUS, Ga., October 12, 2021 – Synovus will host a free contactless Community Shred Day on Saturday, October 23, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Eastern, at the Bradley Park branch, located at 1695 Whittlesey Road.

During the event, the Chattahoochee Valley community is invited to bring mail and other documents that contain personal information to be shredded and securely disposed of by RiverMill Data Management. Participants can bring up to three kitchen-size trash bags or boxes of material to be shredded. It is not necessary to remove staples or paper clips. Synovus Information Risk and Resiliency team members will be on hand to unload documents while participants remain in their vehicles. Synovus team members will wear masks and gloves.

Shredding personal documents and sensitive materials is one of the surest ways to safeguard confidential information. Shredding paper can also save storage space, remove fire hazards, and help the environment.

Suggested documents include:

  • Outdated documents
  • Bill and bank statements
  • Canceled checks
  • Tax records
  • Receipts

The following items will not be accepted:

  • Newspapers
