Santa Barbara Bank & Trust to Host Community Shred Day

Residents are invited to bring old documents to Solvang Veterans Memorial Hall on May 16

Santa Barbara Bank & Trust, in partnership with KEYT 3, the City of Solvang, Iron Mountain, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department and the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians, is sponsoring a Community Shred Day from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 16 at the Solvang Veterans Memorial Hall, 1745 Mission Drive.

“Shredding old documents that contain information such as your Social Security number, bank account numbers or any other confidential data is an essential step in protecting yourself from identity theft,” said C.J. Ward, KEYT news anchor. “We’ve had tremendous success in our previous shredding events, and we hope to make this important program a regular event in our community.”

“This is a great community service that we are thrilled to offer to residents of the Santa Ynez Valley,” said Charlie Uhrig, community resource deputy for the City of Solvang.

All types of paper and file folders of any color can be shredded, and there is no need to remove staples, paper clips or rubber bands. We cannot accept cardboard, common trash, hazardous materials, plastics or metals, CDs, DVDs or binders. There is a six-box maximum per person.

For more information, call Randy Weiss, SBB&T community relations officer, at 805.899.8448.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
