The 2016 Shred-a-Thon has already happened. The next Shred-a-Thon will be held on October 14th, 2017.
The Shred-a-Thon is held annually on the second Saturday of October. Arvada Police partners with Shred-it to safely destroy documents containing personal information. Resident and businesses can bring up to three boxes or three bags of documents. Items recommended for shredding are:
- Credit Card Statements
- Bank Statements
- Tax Forms
- Medical Statements
- Other items containing personal information
The event is free, but donations are welcomed and proceeds from the Shred-a-Thon will benefit the W.Michael Northey Foundation which provides scholarships to local high school students. This is one of only two fundraising events held each year for the Northey Foundation. Area high school students and Arvada Police Explorers will be on hand to assist with unloading items.
