The Attorney General’s Fraud Fighters and Crime, Fraud & Victim Resource Center host Shred-a-thons with commercial shredding companies and community partners to educate consumers about the importance of guarding your trash against identity theft. Credit card offers, tax returns, medical bills and old bank statements should be shredded rather than simply throwing them in the trash. Shred-a-thons offer people opportunities to bring boxes of documents for secure shredding for free and pick up information on Identity Theft prevention. Commercial shredding companies donate their services at these events and community partners, such as city governments, law enforcement agencies and Fraud Fighter Volunteers from the Attorney General’s Office help out.

Upcoming Shred-a-thons:

  • West Valley – Store #5369- 1100 N. Estrella Parkway (Hours 9am-5pm)
  • Central – Store #2512 – 1825 W. Bell Rd., Phoenix (Hours 5am-5pm)
