Shred Day shredder winner

Congratulations to Claire Foley, our Shred Day shredder winner.

Claire stopped by our free community Shred Day to take care of some documents she had been saving. And what good timing: her home shredder just broke.

“I’ll use this shredder every day,” she said. “I want to keep it up just to reduce the clutter.”

We had about 80 people stop by the shredding event, but those people had a ton of material to shred.

Look here for any updates on future shred events!

One ton of paper shredded at Shredfest



Number of the day:

1,920

That’s the amount of paper, in pounds, that Northwest Refuse shredded at our Shredfest last weekend. Almost one ton of paper securely obliterated.

It was a freezing cold and rainy day that Saturday, but about 50 people stopped by to shred their confidential documents in our Home Office parking lot. Bill and the guys from Northwest deserve a pat on the back for standing out there all day to help people out.

We posted some pictures from the event, and I took some video (above) of how the process works.

Stay tuned for news on whether we’ll hold another Shredfest. In the meantime, Northwest Refuse does this kind of thing during regular businesses hours, so be sure to pay them a visit.

Member wins shredder, $50 Visa credit

Deborah H. - shredder winner

Deborah H. gets a lot of credit card solicitations in the mail.

She bought a household shredder to take care of most of it, but when American 1 offered to shred her junk mail for free, she jumped at the chance. Since then, she’s shredded dozens of credit card offers, and won our Top Secret Visa contest – including a heavy-duty home shredder and a $50 credit to her American 1 Visa card.

“American 1 is the only place I do business,” Deborah (above, with her son Cory) says, and her American 1 Visa is the only credit card she has.

Now she’ll use her new shredder to shred everyone else’s credit card offers, including the four she’s received already after winning our contest.

Congrats to Deborah! To learn more about big bank credit card tricks, visit our Top Secret Visa site.
