Santa Barbara Bank & Trust to Hold Community Shred Days in Carpinteria

Residents can bring old documents to Carpinteria High School on July 25 and Aug. 15

Santa Barbara Bank & Trust, in partnership with KEYT 3, the Carpinteria Valley Chamber of Commerce, the Carpinteria Education Foundation, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department and Iron Mountain, is sponsoring two Community Shred Days in Carpinteria.

The events, free to the public, will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 25 and Wednesday, Aug. 15 at Carpinteria High School, 4810 Foothill Road.

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. However, cardboard, common trash, hazardous materials, plastics or metals, CDs, DVDs or binders are not acceptable. There is a limit of six banker boxes or the equivalent per vehicle and, in order to improve the traffic flow and efficiency of this operation, please ensure boxes are delivered from vehicles only.

“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 Randy Weiss, SBB&T community relations officer. “We’ve had tremendous success in our previous shredding events in Santa Barbara and Solvang, and we hope to make this important program a regular event throughout our communities.”

For more information, call Weiss 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!
