Upcoming Dates

Everyone understands the importance of keeping sensitive documents safe and away from identity thieves. That means keeping documents with your financial and personal information out of the normal trash. But the question is – what do you do with all that paper?

Bank of Tennessee and Carter County Bank are here to help keep your financial information safe by offering free document shredding throughout the year. We make it easy: just bring your sensitive documents by one of our shred day events and our volunteers will remove them from your vehicle and place them into our document shredding truck for safe disposal.

See below for upcoming dates and locations as well as as some helpful tips on how to prepare to shred your documents.
