What: The Arizona Attorney General’s Office (AGO), Pima County Sheriff's Department, and the Sahuarita Unified School District are hosting a FREE Shred-A-Thon and Prescription Drug Take-Back event this Saturday, May 22, in Sahuarita, Arizona.
The public will be asked to remain in their vehicle during this no-contact event. Participants are asked to place documents and unwanted prescription drugs in the trunk of their vehicle before arriving.
There is a five-box limit for shredded documents. Examples of items not accepted (but not limited to): binders, binder clips, inhalers, aerosol cans, lotions or liquids, needles, and hydrogen peroxide.
When: Saturday, May 22nd, 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM (or until trucks are full)
Where: Wrightson Ridge Elementary, 16325 S. Rancho Sahuarita Blvd., Sahuarita, AZ 85629
Why: Shredding your personal or sensitive documents is an important step to protecting your identity. Getting rid of old prescription drugs is key in keeping opioids out of the hands of youth and reducing the risks for abuse.
