Have you ever tried shredding all of those papers you have sitting in the corner of your office yourself?

How is that working for you? If you are anything like me. It ends up being a pile that no standard shredder could handle or a time consuming vacuum.

Well, we are in luck! The fine folks over at the Scottsdale Police Department will be holding Scottsdale PD Shred Events starting September 8th 2018, and taking place every month until May 5th 2019. The events will be located in the Walmart parking lot at 15355 N. Northsight Blvd, Scottsdale, 85260. Map it. The events will begin at 7am and a $4 donation per box is suggested and goes directly to POSA and their outreach efforts.

You can find more information about POSA and these events on the POSA website. Happy Shredding!

    Thank you for spreading the word for the Shred Events. Your message says “last Sat. of the month”. That’s not always true. Oct 18th, for example, is not the last Sat. Most are the last Sat, but its not a rule.

    Thanks again,

    I just wanted to tell you how pleased I was with the shredding event at Walmart today. I am a senior
    citizen and had many old documents to destroy. Everyone was so pleasant and helpful. Thank you
    so much for offering such a much needed event,

  4. Hi Kathy,

    Yes, there will be some more coming up starting in September. I will be updating the blog today to include the new dates. Check back soon.

  5. There seems to be confusion on shredding dates, could you please confirm the shredding date for October 2015, the schedule says 10/24, is that correct?

    Thank you, this is a great service!

  6. Hi Audrey,

    Yes October 24th is the confirmed date. You can click the link to the City of Scottsdale’s website to see their event calendar as well.

    Please confirm that this Saturday 12/2/2017 is a shredding day at Walmart on Northsight? Also can you tell me if there is a limit to how many boxes or brown bags? Is there a charge?
    Thanks Janice

  8. Hi Janice. I can confirm it to the extent that it is on the POSA and City of Scottsdale website. So it is still happening as far as I know.

    Thank you!

  9. Does it need to be in a bankers box or can I bring it in a plastic bag?

  10. Patsy Bratter says

    Do you have to remove metal bindings from documents not staples or paper clips but the metal inserts for large tax returns?

  11. Monika Truax says
