Event attendees will be able to shred documents with personal information on them that could make them targets for identity theft, such as outdated medical records or bank statements. Shredding will occur on-site at the event. Old electronic devices, such as televisions, will be accepted for recycling. Residents are also encouraged to bring unwanted, unused and expired prescription drugs and over-the-counter medication to be safely discarded. This event is free and open to the public.
