Documents do not have to be removed from envelopes.  Window envelopes with film are okay.  Staples do not have to be removed.

What to Shred?  

  • Documents with personal information such as social security number
  • Documents with personal information about your medical history
  • Documents with your credit card information or credit scores
  • Junk mail for credit card offers should be shredded

What NOT to Shred

  • Do not include items such as phone books, file folders and binders

Most JUNK MAIL does NOT need to be shredded!  Shredding documents costs money, consumes time and energy, and decreases the value of the paper.  Shredding is great for protecting your sensitive documents and your identity but shredding should not be used for non-sensitive documents.

The Bank of Hemet is committed to supporting and enriching the communities in which we serve, and is proud to sponsor this important community event.
