There is no need to leave your car!  The public can stay in their vehicle and is asked to place documents requiring shredding in the trunk of their car prior to arriving.

There is a five-box max limit for shredded documents.

Examples of items not accepted (but not limited to): binders, binder clips, electronics, inhalers, lotions or liquids, aerosols, needles, and hydrogen peroxide. 

When: Saturday, September 24, from 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM (or until trucks are full).

Where: Leman Academy of Excellence, 10100 E. Golf Links Rd., Tucson, AZ 85730

Why: Shredding your personal or sensitive documents is an important step to protecting your identity and your financial information.

Properly disposing of old prescription drugs is key to keeping opioids and other dangerous medications out of the hands of youth and reducing the risks of abuse. 

If there are any questions regarding this event please contact AGO Community Outreach at (602) 542-2123 or at CommunityOutreach@azag.gov.
