The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office is partnering with Metro Denver Crime Stoppers, FOX31 and Iron Mountain to bring you our annual Shred-a-thon. We will shred up to three legal-sized boxes or kitchen-sized trash bags full of sensitive documents in exchange for a voluntary donation to Metro Denver Crime Stoppers.
All Shred-It employees are licensed and bonded and each location is supervised by law enforcement officers.

Experts suggest shredding: cancelled checks, ATM & credit card receipts, old credit cards, credit card offers, old bank statements, bills, tax records and receipts (keep for 7 years), medical records and bills (keep one year), pay stubs (keep one year). Keep most recent version of your: social security statements, insurance policy statements and retirement plan statement.
