The community is invited to collect their confidential documents and destroy them securely at Metro Denver
Crime Stoppers’ annual Shred-a-thon. The event is scheduled for Saturday, May 15, 2021, from 7 a.m. to noon at Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office (13101 E Broncos Parkway, Centennial).
Metro Denver Crime Stoppers is partnering with FOX31, Channel 2, Iron Mountain, Waste Management, and metro area law
enforcement to help residents prevent identity theft and ensure that their shredded documents are recycled.
There will be no charge for the event; however, attendees will be asked to make a voluntary donation to Metro Denver Crime Stoppers,
a non-profit organization that pays reward money to those who provide anonymous information about crimes and wanted persons
that help keep the greater metropolitan area safe.
Confidential records, such as medical documents, bank information, tax documents, credit card statements, and other items containing
personal and private information are ideal for drop-off.
Attendees should do the following:
• Bring confidential documents. No phonebooks, hardcover books, CDs, DVDs, hanging file folders, cardboard, or
electronics will be accepted.
• Pack confidential documents in a cardboard box or clean trash bag. Each vehicle will be limited to up to three trash
bags/bankers’ boxes of documents. Remove binders or other non-paper contaminants; paperclips, staples, and window
envelopes are acceptable. Boxes and bags should be easy to lift to keep our volunteers safe from lifting injuries.
• Stay in your vehicle, but make sure that your trunk and back doors are unlocked and easy for volunteers to open quickly.
• Boxes, bags, and transport containers will be given back to the attendees.
