Destroy Documents and Declutter at Chelsea Groton Shred Days

Bank to host three free, secure, and safe shred and recycling events
Many have spent a lot of time at home over the last six months, and likely had an opportunity to go through old bank statements, bills, tax documents and other sensitive records. If you haven’t yet been able to securely shred this paperwork, Chelsea Groton Bank is providing FREE secure document shredding services this fall, to protect confidential information and avoid identity theft.
“The number of people who are victimized because sensitive data is stolen continues to rise,” said Lori Dufficy, EVP, Director of Sales & Service at Chelsea Groton Bank. “Although criminals are increasingly using cyber-attacks to gain access to personal information online, we encourage everyone to properly dispose of hard copy documents that can literally put their financial future in the wrong hands.”
To make the process quick, convenient and safe, three separate Shred Days will be available at Chelsea Groton Bank branches:

  • Saturday, October 3 from 9am – 12pm at the Center Groton Branch, 1319 Gold Star Highway
  • Saturday, October 24 from 9am – 12pm at the North Stonington Branch, 391 Norwich Westerly Road
  • Saturday, November 14 from 9am – 12pm at the Norwich-Westside Branch, 444 West Main Street
These complimentary services are available to members and non-members of the Bank. Simply bring up to three file-sized boxes of documents to any of the events and bank representatives will ensure everything is destroyed. Once shredded, the paper will be recycled.
In order to protect the health and safety of all present, please wear a mask, practice social distancing, and refrain from participating if you recently traveled to a state on the CT Travel Advisory. The staff assisting with shredding will be wearing masks and gloves.
