Shred Day's focus is to raise awareness of identity theft prevention, recycling and giving back to the local community.

"We are proud to partner with Iron Mountain again for Shred Day Houston," said J. Downey Bridgwater, Comerica Bank's Houston Market President. "Research shows identity fraud hit an all-time high with 16.7 million U.S. victims in 2017. That's why it's important for Comerica Bank to help protect our community – shredding is a safe, easy preventative step that helps ensure personal information remains private."

All paper from Shred Day Houston will be turned into pulp and recycled after being securely destroyed.

"The process of recycling paper alone generates 74 percent less air pollution and uses 50 percent less water," Bridgwater said. "At Comerica, we are dedicated to protecting and preserving the environment, while investing in the communities we serve. Shred Day helps us accomplish both goals."

Comerica Bank also will help shred hunger at the event. The Houston Food Bank will be on-site to collect cash donations, as well as nonperishable food items.

The public, including business owners and nonprofits, is invited to bring personal or business paper documents to be securely destroyed and recycled. There is no limit to the amount of paper individuals can bring, and there will be special lanes to accommodate large loads.

Shred Day, a Comerica signature community event also held in the Dallas, Detroit and Phoenix markets, has played an integral role in the bank's corporate sustainability initiative.
