Shredding old documents -- Zions Bank?

Postby lahimatoa » Wed Sep 17, 2014 8:28 pm

This is my first year as ward clerk, and I am trying to find a good way to shred the documents from 2002-2004 that are taking up space in a filing cabinet in the office.

I read somewhere that Zions will shred old documents once per year per ward; is that true? Is there a number I call to get that done? Manually shredding these in our 3-pages-at-a-time shredder will take too long.

Thanks.

I don't know about that, I live too far away to know. But there are various community groups that sponsor shredding - usually around the first of the year.

If you're in the US, be sure also to include documents from 2005-2010 in your shredding party. :eek:

Yes, absolutely. :) Apparently the last clerk did a good job with those, but there is a second filing cabinet that he apparently forgot to check while he was in charge.

As another possible option (depending on where you live): When I was clerk, a bishopric counselor had a burn barrel on his property that we were able to utililze. You can wear out (or overheat) a small shredder trying to get rid of a whole year's worth of records.
