Debt/Credit Card Recycling/Secure Take Back

Hi, I wanted to suggest that BECU offers a take back program for used debit and credit cards of all kinds for their members. You could partner with a group already doing credit and gift card recycling like Earthworks Systems as mentioned in this article: http://earth911.com/living-well-being/recycling-mystery-gift-cards/

 

Cards could be shredded onsite when a member returns them for added security - the shreds could still be sent to be recycled into new cards.

 

Additionally, BECU could source recycled PVC for the cards themselves and we'd all be impacting the environment less.

 @khamis- Thanks for the detailed idea, we'll be sure to check out the link you shared! I'm looking forward to seeing what the community thinks about this idea. Cheers, KristinA

I like this idea. Especially with many cardholders having had early replacements to be upgraded to the chip cards, I think this would be valuable.

@khamis Wer'e not ready to spearhead a program like you're proposing, but we appreciate your thoughtful idea and you can always bring your old card to any of our locations to have them safely destroyed. JohnS
