Comerica Bank Shred Day DFW 2023

Since launching Shred Day DFW in 2011 with our event partner Iron Mountain, we have helped North Texans securely destroy and recycle over 3.5 million pounds of sensitive paper documents, helping keep that information out of the hands of “dumpster divers” and local landfills.

In the process, our generous guests have helped us raise over $150,000 and 75,000+ pounds of food for the North Texas Food Bank, which is equivalent to providing more than 518,000 meals for hungry North Texans.

On Saturday, April 22, we’ll be hosting our 11th annual Shred Day DFW at Mercer Business Park, at the northwest corner of I-35E and I-635. The event is free and open to the public, and there is no limit to how much paper you can bring! Consumers and business owners may 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 like old bank statements, tax returns (7 years or older), medical bills, utility statements and preapproved credit card offers is the single best way you can prevent identity theft, the fastest growing crime in the U.S. with more than 15 million victims annually.

We look forward to serving you at Shred Day DFW, and to raising your expectations of what a bank can be in the community!


What types of paper documents should I consider shredding?

Anything that contains sensitive information (name, address, Social Security numbers, account numbers, 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/receipts, bank statements, medical records, credit card offers and old tax documents (older than 7 years), just to name a few.

Prohibited items include:

  • Some paper: telephone books and hardcover books
  • Trash: food waste, bottles, glass, cans, inks/toners, dyes, paints
  • Metals: ring binders, lever-arch binders, hanging folders, large bulldog clips, license plates
  • Plastics: plastic bags, packing materials, computer discs, CDs, DVDs, backup tapes, videotapes, transparencies, ID badges, driver’s licenses, microfiche/microfilm, X-rays
  • HAZMAT: biochemical waste, sharps, toxic substances, flammables, explosives
  • Hardware: computers, laptops, printers, monitors, photocopier parts

How does Iron Mountain recycle my shredded documents?

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.

Where can I drop off my documents on April 22?

At the Mercer Business Park (12121 N. Stemmons Freeway, Dallas, TX, 75234) between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. There is no limit to how much paper you can bring, and we’ll have special “large load” lanes for trucks, trailers, U-Hauls, etc. The event works like a giant drive-through, and guests are asked to remain in their vehicles for safety reasons while the Iron Mountain employees remove documents from your vehicle.

Can I drop off my paper documents at other Comerica Bank locations before the event or on the day of the event?

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 22.

Will my documents be destroyed on-site while I wait?

All paper materials will be securely destroyed on-site. However, to process our event guests in an efficient manner, we cannot guarantee that your documents will be shredded while you wait, but please be assured it is a secure process. For safety reasons, we encourage all guests to remain in their vehicles.

Can you take my cardboard boxes, too?

Yes! If you are bringing your paper documents in cardboard boxes, we will accept, process and recycle both the paper and the cardboard.

How can I learn more about Iron Mountain or the North Texas Food Bank?

We encourage you to visit their websites at and

Will representatives from the North Texas Food Bank be at the event to take my donation?

Yes! Volunteers from the North Texas Food Bank will be happy to collect any nonperishable food items and/or cash or monetary donations from our guests.

Do I have to donate food in order to attend Shred Day?

A donation is not required, but we sure hope you’ll consider bringing at least two nonperishable food items or a cash/check donation to help support the North Texas Food Bank and our local community.
