The Shred-A-Thon will be Saturday, October 8th, from 8:00 am - Noon.
Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office is proud to join with Metro Denver Crime Stoppers, Fox 31 / KDVR, Iron Mountain and other metro area law enforcement to help prevent identity theft by holding our annual Shred-a-thons at locations throughout the metro Denver area.
Safely get rid of your personal information (like tax returns, business records, etc.) while also helping us catch bad guys! Your confidential information will be shredded for free by Shred It Iron Mountain which will ensure your documents are destroyed securely and your privacy is protected. Shred it also recycles the shredded paper, which helps the environment. While the service is free, Crime Stoppers welcomes and appreciates any and all donations.
The annual Shred-a-thon benefits Metro Denver Crime Stoppers, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that helps law enforcement agencies identify and arrest criminal suspects through anonymous tips. Crime Stoppers also teaches the community about crime prevention. When you call the Crime Stoppers tip line at 720-913-STOP (7867), you can earn cash rewards and remain anonymous. You can report information about unsolved crimes, including animal cruelty cases, or about people wanted by police.
Each vehicle will be limited to up to three clean trash bags/bankers’ boxes of documents. Items containing personal and private information are ideal for drop-off. Remove binders or other non-paper contaminants. Paperclips, staples, and window envelopes are acceptable. Stay in your vehicle, but make sure that your trunk and back doors are unlocked and easy for volunteers to open quickly. Boxes and bags should be easy to lift to keep our volunteers safe from lifting injuries. Boxes, bags, and transport containers will be given back to the attendees.
What to bring: Confidential Documents and Records, Medical Documents, Bank Information, Tax Documents, and Credit Card Statements. What NOT to Bring: CD's and DVD's, Hanging File Folders, Carboard, and Electronics.
