DFCU Offers FREE Shred Events


DFCU Financial offers residents four opportunities to have their paper records and data storage materials shredded and recycled at special Community Shred Days this spring and summer.  These free events aim to raise public awareness of the need to securely destroy confidential materials to prevent identity theft and fraud, as well as to encourage recycling.

“When people securely dispose of their confidential documents, their risk of identity theft decreases significantly,” said Chief Information Officer Vince Pittiglio. “By hosting a community shred day, we offer citizens the opportunity to protect themselves from this very real concern.” 

Materials will be collected from 11:30 am – 2:30 pm at:

Livonia Branch, May 18, 2019 

Fairlane Branch, June 8, 2019

Briarwood Branch, July 13, 2019

Clinton Township Branch, September 14, 2019

“We at DFCU Financial, in addition to talking about the importance of avoiding identity theft, are offering a way for people to do something about it,” said Livonia Branch Manager Theresa Aquino.  “That is why we are co-sponsoring these events with trusted partner Iron Mountain, AAA certified by the National Association for Information Destruction.”

The drop-off events are open to the public. There is a maximum of 5 boxes/bags limit per vehicle. For additional information, please contact Peggy Richard, peggy.richard@dfcufinancial.com or by calling 313.322.8239.

Annual Cash Back payments are limited to an aggregate of $25,000 for each tax-reported owner.
