This Shred-A-Thon is provided as a community service. This event was established to prevent identity theft by providing a twice a year shredding opportunity. Consequently, this is a convenient way for local residents to shred unneeded documents at a convenient location.
The Shredding service is donated by ASDD Document Destruction of Tempe. The shredded documents are sold to benefit the Tempe Hilibation Center. There will be a shred truck on site for those who want to see their documents shredded. There will also be a truck with secure bins that are locked. The contents transported to the ASDD facility in Tempe for their commercial shredding. So don’t miss the Free Shred-A-Thon October 21, 2017, at Monte Vista.
Shirley & Gregory ask for a food donation for the Kyrene Food Bank. This is located at the Kyrene Resource Center supported by the Kyrene Foundation. Suggest donation is one food item for each box or bag of shred items brought to the Shred-A-Thon. No need to remove staples or paper clips (no 3 ring binders). ASDD can also accommodate the shredding of CDs.
While we can not accept hardware for shredding. However, ASDD’s Tempe facility can accommodate shredding of hard drives.
