Residents may drive up to The Village Church and drop off their personal documents, old mail, expired credit cards, and other personal materials to be shredded on-site in the mobile vehicle. FineMark staff members will be at the event to ensure your security. You can bring items to shred in any bag, box, or container of your choice. This is the perfect time to shred personal financial information, old credit cards, and confidential paperwork.
