Negaunee, MI  –  May 4, 2015 –  Honor Credit Union hosted a successful Community Shred Day to help the community and promote recycling on Friday, May 1st at their Negaunee location.

Many people took advantage of the Shred Day, bringing all kinds of old documents to be safely shredded and recycled by Country Mile Document Destruction.

Public Relations Specialist Kelly Niemisto said a few thousand pounds of paper was shredded and recycled on Friday, saving about 60 trees.

Encouraging recycling is just one of the many ways Honor Credit Union gives back to the communities they serve throughout Michigan.

Country Mile Document Destruction Services provided shredding and recycling at the Honor Community Shred Day on May 1st.

According to the EPA, recycling just one ton of paper would:

  • Save enough energy to power the average American home for six months,
  • Save 7,000 gallons of water,
  • Save 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space,
  • reduce greenhouse gas emissions by one metric ton of carbon equivalent (MTCE).

“We plan on doing more of these Community Shred Days in the future and we plan on having them at our Gwinn and our Marquette branches as well,” added Niemisto. “This was the first Community Shred Day we’ve ever done and it was highly successful.”

Honor Credit Union – putting members and their communities first since 1932.
