Arvada PD Shred-A-Thon

Due to ongoing covid considerations, the Arvada PD Shred-a-Thon will not be held in 2021. Please consider making a donation to the Northey Foundation, which the shred-a-thon supports. The foundation relies on the generous donation of the Arvada community to provide support for families of fallen police officers and college scholarships. Visit and

About the Arvada PD Shred-a-Thon

The Shred-a-Thon is traditionally held annually on the second Saturday of October 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.
