The Sunnyside Police Department and Yakima County Crime Stoppers are among the sponsors for an event this week where the public can bring documents for shredding.
Held as a way to help prevent identity theft, the free service will be provided this coming Saturday, Oct. 26, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Sunnyside Law and Justice Center, 401 Homer St.
Also with support from sponsors C I Shred and Solarity Credit Union, the event will provide free shredding of personal documents such as old tax forms, checks, bank statements and credit card statements.
Material is limited to two banker boxes or three shopping bags of personal papers per person.
During the same time this coming Saturday, expired medications can be taken to the site for safe disposal. There is no limit to the amount of prescription drugs that can be taken there for disposal.
There is no cost for the service, but Yakima County Crime Stoppers is accepting donations to benefit its award fund.
Besides the Sunnyside Law and Justice Center, this coming Saturday’s shred drive will also be held at Solarity Credit Union, 401 Tieton Dr. in Yakima.
