Personal Document Shredding/Drug Disposal Event Today from 10:00 am Until Noon (Photo) - 03/10/18

Released by: Sgt. William Bailey
Release Date: March 10, 2018

Event Location: Deschutes County Sheriff's Office, 63333 Hwy 20 West, Bend

The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office and Secure Shred are collaborating today from 10:00 am until noon to provide residents the opportunity to safely destroy up to 4 medium boxes of personal documents and learn identity theft prevention tips.

This event is intended for private residential document shredding and is not for business or company disposal. The Sheriff's Office will also have information on how to avoid becoming an identity theft victim and what to do if you believe your identity has already been stolen.

No advance document sorting is necessary as shredding equipment can destroy paperwork with paper clips or staples attached. File folders and binders may also be shredded.

Drug Disposal Program

The Sheriff's Office will also have a deputy available to collect outdated or unwanted prescription medication. No needles or over-the-counter drugs will be accepted.

The drug disposal program is designed to keep unwanted or unused medications away from abusers, children and animals. The program is also intended to reduce negative environmental impact to the water, soil and landfill's by using proper disposal practices.

Donate a Non-Perishable Food

The Sheriff's Office is asking event participants to consider bringing a donation of non-perishable food to benefit local food banks.
