Shred Fest 2022

MCU’s Shred Fest is back! And with a new partner. Shred Fest 2022 will be held in partnership with the Madison Fire Department Credit Union. We are teaming up to support all of our hometown heroes in keeping their information safe.

On May 21st from 8am to 10am, MCU & MFDCU staff, along with pro shredders, Pellitteri Data Destruction Division, will be at the Lapham Elementary School’s parking lot shredding it up.

Pay close attention to the shredding requirements and shred responsibly.

Members can bring in the equivalent of up to 3 boxes of paper or 3 bags of paper’ = 50 pounds.  Plastic bags cannot be shredded; it is preferred that customers bring their material in paper bags. 

What CAN be Shredded:PellitteriThe following is a list of what paper materials can be put into the carts.

  • File folders, Spiral Notebooks, Envelopes, Checks, Tax Returns, Etc…
  • Hardcover Books (set these aside in boxes or next to the carts)
  • Paper clips, staples, rubber bands do not need to be removed

All the paper shredded is paper that needs to be recycled, so no contamination please.
