Iberia Bank was recognized Oct. 25 by the Collier County Commission with an official proclamation for the bank’s continued efforts to promote waste reduction, reuse, recycling and environmental awareness. Officially referred to as the “WRAP Award,” the Waste Reduction Awards Program recognizes businesses, institutions, and multi-family residences for enhanced and innovative recycling programs.

This initiative was led by Iberia vice president and branch manager for the Marco Island branch, Keith Dameron. Dameron and his staff partnered with Shred-it to host five different community shred events that collected over 11 tons of shredded paper. In addition to promoting the importance of recycling, the bank aimed to educate the community about the need to shred personal documents to protect against fraud and identity theft.

“We were so honored to receive the WRAP Award,” said Dameron. “Our staff has truly rallied around waste reduction and recycling, and we are so pleased to have this endorsement from the Solid Waste Management Department. Janet Ty Go, Recycling Coordinator for the county, has always supported our efforts, and we are grateful for this recognition.”

The next community shred day is scheduled for Nov. 19, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at Iberia on Marco Island, 605 Bald Eagle Drive. Individuals and small businesses are invited to bring documents to be professionally shredded. A $2.00 donation will be collected for each box of shredded material. All donations will be given to the Traveling Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund which is coordinating the arrival of a replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall to be on display at Veterans Community Park on Marco Island in December.
