May 18, 2019

HUNTINGTON — Huntington Federal Savings Bank invites individuals and businesses from across the region to a free “Shred & E-Cycle” event that it will sponsor on behalf of BBB Charitable & Educational Fund Inc. The event will take place Saturday, May 18, at the Marshall University parking lot located at the corner of 3rd Avenue and Hal Greer Boulevard in Huntington.

During the event, participants are invited to drop off old credit card statements, credit card offers, medical papers, IRS tax records and other sensitive documents with personal information for onsite commercial shredding between the hours of 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., according to bank officials.

“We’re providing this important service so both individuals and businesses can prevent possible identity theft,” said Matthew Wagner, president and CEO of Huntington Federal Savings Bank, in a news release. “By offering the opportunity to have documents commercially shredded, we’re helping the public to be empowered to protect their confidential information.”

Electronic devices may also be dropped off for e-cycling. Accepted electronics include non-alkaline batteries, CDs, cellphones, computer keyboards and components, ink and toner cartridges, speakers, televisions and other items. Tube-style monitors and fluorescent light bulbs may also be submitted for e-cycling with payment of a disposal fee that ranges from $1 to $5.

For all other shredding and e-cycling services, there is no charge. Monetary donations, however, to the BBB Charitable and Educational Fund Inc. are welcomed and appreciated to help support similar events in the future.
