Personal Document Shredding

The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office and Data Delete are collaborating on September 12th to provide residents the opportunity to safely destroy personal documents and learn identity theft prevention tips. The event is intended for private residential document shredding and is not for business or company disposal.

At the event, the Sheriff’s Office will have information on how to avoid becoming an identity theft victim and what to do if you believe your identity has already been stolen.

No advance document sorting is necessary as shredding equipment can destroy paperwork with paper clips or staples attached. File folders and binders may also be shredded.

Donate a Non-Perishable Food

The Sheriff’s Office is asking event participants to consider bringing a donation of non-perishable food to benefit Neighbor Impact.

Drug Disposal Program

At the event, the Sheriff’s Office will also have a deputy available to collect outdated or unwanted prescription medication. Please note that needles and non-prescription medications are not accepted at this event.

The drug disposal program is designed to keep unwanted or unused medications away from abusers, children and animals. The program is also intended to reduce negative environmental impact to the water, soil and landfill’s by using proper disposal practices.

“We want to make Deschutes County citizens aware of the risks of improper document and drug disposal while helping local families at need in the community,” said Sheriff L. Shane Nelson.
