Sunryse partners with RBC for 10th Annual Shred Day

On Thursday, October 12, 2017, Sunryse Information Management in partnership with RBC Royal Bank will host its 10th annual Sunryse Shred Day. Starting at 7:00 a.m., the document management company will collect and shred free of charge a maximum of 100 pounds of confidential documents per person participating in the event. In turn, Sunryse will donate $1 for every 10 pounds of shredded paper to the Sister Sister Breast Cancer Support group. Event cosponsors RBC Royal Bank will match this amount up to $1000.

Shred Day began as a way for Sunryse to educate the public on the importance of protecting confidential information. It also allowed the company to contribute to worthy causes in the community. Since 2007, the initiative has resulted in an estimated 50,000 pounds of shredded bank statements, credit card receipts and other confidential records and more than $16,000 in donations to local non-profit organizations.

“As a company, we are committed to sensitizing the public and the business community on the importance of guarding confidentiality, and being proactive as it relates to all aspects of document management including destruction. We are pleased to have RBC join us for the second year in a row as a major cosponsor for Shred Day,” said Chris Sawyer, president of Sunryse Information Management.

“Through the years, we have watched Shred Day evolve into an event that our clients and the public look forward to supporting. Through this initiative, we’ve also been able to support causes like Sister Sister as they continue to help members of the broader Bahamian community.”

Over the next 10 days, Sunryse and RBC Royal Bank are encouraging members of the public to organize personal documents so that items needing to be disposed of can be securely shredded in a safe and environmentally friendly way.

“RBC is pleased to participate in Shred Day 2017. We recognize the importance of responsibly managing and, where required, disposing of information in a manner that protects our clients and our business, and does not harm the communities in which we operate,” said Kevin Darling, head, business banking, RBC Royal Bank.

“Our business banking team looks forward to volunteering at this event and we encourage others in the community to participate as well. We share the common belief that giving back to the community is essential to its growth and development. This partnership allows us to fulfill our purpose of helping our clients thrive and communities prosper. We congratulate the team at Sunryse Information Management for the vision and heart behind this initiative.”

Shred Day 2017 starts at 7 a.m. and runs to 6 p.m. on Thursday, October 12 on the Western Esplanade parking lot at Arawak Cay, opposite the Road Traffic Inspection Office.
