First Bank & Trust will hold a Shredding Event on from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 20 at the 2925 Central St. branch.  

Shredding paper is a safe and secure way to dispose of confidential papers. Shredding is also a great way to conserve natural resources and protect the environment. 

Individuals may bring up to 25 pounds of personal papers to be shredded for no charge. First Bank & Trust recycled approximately 15,000 pounds of paper in 2012, saving the equivalent of 128 trees.
