Suitland, Maryland (PRWEB) June 22, 2016

Andrews Federal Credit Union recently hosted a Shred Day at its Headquarters location. Credit Union members, as well as members of the local community, were able to safely dispose of their old personal records in an effort to combat identity theft and fraud.

“We were happy to be able to give our members and the community an opportunity to dispose of confidential documents, while also being environmentally conscious,” said Jim Hayes, President & CEO. “Additionally, we want to continue to do our part to reduce our carbon footprint, minimize the amount of waste sent to a landfill and do business in a sustainable way.”

A total of 7,400lbs or 3.7 tons were shredded at the event. Environmentally, it equates to more than 7 barrels of oil, nearly 63 trees and almost 26,000 gallons of water. Needless to say, Andrews Federal is doing its part to contribute to environmental sustainability.
