Arvada PD Shred-A-Thon

The Arvada PD 2020 Shred-a-Thon will be rescheduled. Please visit and consider making a donation, as the foundation relies on the generous donation of the Arvada community to provide support for families of fallen police officers and college scholarships. 

About the Arvada PD Shred-a-Thon

The Shred-a-Thon is traditionally held annually on the second Saturday of October. Arvada Police partners with Iron Mountain 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.
