(Aberdeen, October 20, 2010)— As part of its Personal Security Awareness Month, Aberdeen Proving Ground Federal Credit Union [APGFCU] hosted a free Shred-It Day at its Aberdeen, Edgewood, Elkton, Laurel Bush and North East branches. Attracting over 600 members, the event shredded and recycled nearly 10,000 pounds of paper, the equivalent of saving nearly 80 trees.
The annual event is designed to provide a fun and fast means for APGFCU members to dispose of sensitive information, decreasing the chance of it being stolen by “dumpster divers” and burglars, and is an effective way to safeguard personal financial information while recycling paper.
APGFCU is also committed to helping members protect their financial information and prevent fraud by offering free online educational resources and free e-Services. For more information, visit www.APGFCU.com or call 410-272-4000, and press four
I am excited. You shred 10,000 pounds of paper which is the equivalent of saving almost 80 trees. What if I told you that by switching to GREEN Energy a residential customer using 1,000 kilowatt hours per month will reduce their carbon emissions by more than 1,920 pounds which is the equivalent of planting 114 trees or 2,115 miles not driven! Not taking away from APGFCU’s efforts here but if EACH Harford county resident who pays an electric bill made that kind of change…imagine what kind of impact we would really have in our community, our county, our world.
