What: The Arizona Attorney General’s Office (AGO), Sierra Vista Police Department, and Sierra Vista Citizenship Police Academy Association, are hosting a FREE no-contact Shred-A-Thon and Prescription Drug Take-Back event this Saturday, March 20, in Sierra Vista.
Event volunteers and participants will follow current CDC social distancing guidelines. The public will be asked to remain in their vehicle during the 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, March 20th - 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM (or until trucks are full)
Where: Veterans Memorial Park, 3105 E Fry Blvd, Sierra Vista, AZ 85635
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.
