Comerica Bank Shred Day Houston 2024

Now in our eleventh year working with our event partner, Iron Mountain, Comerica Bank Shred Day Houston 2024 is once again helping Houstonians shred private documents and papers.

Why it’s important 
Our goal is to protect your privacy and the earth by keeping these documents out of the hands of dumpster divers and local landfills. Since 2013, we have helped securely destroy and recycle over 1,000,000 pounds of sensitive paper documents.

In addition, thanks to the generosity of the community, the event has helped raise nearly $106,000 and contribute 50,000 pounds of food for the Houston Food Bank. That contribution equals a much-needed 360,000 meals for hungry Houstonians.

How it works
Customers, members of the community, and business owners can bring any amount of personal or business paper documents and we’ll destroy and recycle them securely and efficiently. If you can bring it, we can shred it!

Shredding sensitive documents is the single best way to prevent identity theft, the fastest growing crime in the U.S. with more than 13 million victims annually.

We look forward to seeing you at Shred Day Houston. Our team will be there and ready to raise your expectations of what a bank can be in the community!


You may bring your paper documents to be securely destroyed. You are not required to remove small staples, paper clips, rubber bands and/or small fasteners; however, please find a list of prohibited items below.

Prohibited items include:

  • Paper: cardboard, telephone books, hardcover books
  • Trash: food waste, bottles, glass, cans, inks, dyes, paints
  • Metals: ring binders, lever arch binders, hanging folders, large bulldog clips, license plates
  • Plastics: plastic bags and packing materials, computer discs, CDs, DVDs, backup tapes, video tapes, transparencies, ID badges, driver's licenses, microfiche, microfilm, X-rays
  • HAZMAT: biochemical waste, sharps, toxic substances, flammables, explosives
  • Hardware: computer, printer or photocopier parts

While we’ll make every effort to destroy the majority of the collected documents on-site with mobile shredding units or live shredding trucks, some of the paper documents will be loaded into secure trucks and transported to Iron Mountain’s nearby shredding plant for secure destruction and recycling. The goal of the event is to process our guests efficiently, and for safety reasons, we encourage all guests to remain in their vehicles.

Anything that contains sensitive information (name, address, Social Security number, account number, etc.) that you no longer need and that you want to keep out of the hands of thieves or “dumpster divers.” These documents could include old utility invoices, bank statements, medical records, credit card offers and old tax documents (older than 7 years), just to name a few.

We cannot accept cardboard boxes. If you bring your paper documents in a cardboard box, the Iron Mountain representative will hand the box back to you after emptying its contents into the secure shredding bins.

After Iron Mountain securely destroys your paper documents, the processed materials are then transported to paper mills to be turned into pulp for recycled paper. This destruction process greatly reduces pollution, preserves landfill space and saves trees, water and even oil resources.

We encourage you to visit their websites:

At the Comerica Bank Mangum Banking Center located at 2201 Mangum Road, Houston, TX 77092, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. While there is no specific bag or box limit like in years past, we ask guests to limit the amount of paper to one vehicle load in order to securely process everyone’s documents in an efficient manner. Please note the event works like a big drive-through, and guests are asked to remain in their vehicles for safety reasons.

Yes, volunteers from the Food Bank will be present to collect any donations from our guests.

Comerica employees are not able to accept documents for shredding from customers or other members of the public. Please attend Shred Day to have your sensitive paper documents destroyed for free on Saturday, April 6.

A donation is not required for admission. However, we sure hope you'll consider bringing two nonperishable food items to help support the Houston Food Bank and our local community.
