2021 Free Shred Day on April 17

Mid Oregon has teamed up with Republic Services to provide free, personal shredding for our members and the community. Join us on Saturday, April 17, for our 2021 Free Shred Day!

Support Healthy Beginnings

There is no cost for shredding services. However, Mid Oregon will accept donations to benefit Healthy Beginnings. This local organization offers free health and developmental screenings for children entering kindergarten.

Safe Disposal of  Documents

You can be better protected from fraud and identity theft by shredding any personal documents. On Shred Day, bring up to three boxes or bags of personal documents per vehicle. Documents with staples and paper clips are accepted, too! Please note: commercial or business shredding services will not be provided.

On Saturday, April 17, shredding is available at the following Mid Oregon Credit Union locations:

  • 9-11 a.m. Bend (2nd and Olney) and Madras branches
  • 12-2 p.m. Prineville and Redmond branches

For specific branch location addresses, visit our website.

Additional Information

Free Shred Day will include measures to ensure the safety of volunteers and shred participants, including:

  • Staff and volunteers will wear masks and gloves.
  • Vehicles will move to the designated location at the branch.
  • Participants will place their materials into bins provided on-site.
  • Mid Oregon volunteers and the shred operator will take the bin to complete the shredding.
  • Lastly, Healthy Beginnings will be on-site to answer any questions. So, you can make cash or check donation that day at their table, or donate online at https://myhb.org/donate.

We look forward to seeing you at our 2021 Free Shred Day on April 17!

Hi Angelina,

Sorry to take so long to respond! Usually each year in early May the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office schedules a shred event. It’s often on the same day as the Mid State Electric Annual Meeting at La Pine Middle School. However, due to COVID-19 restrictions, they missed 2020, and haven’t scheduled one yet for La Pine.

We had an ID Theft webinar featuring members of the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office forensics team, and they said nothing was scheduled for this year yet. It looks like they just scheduled one for Bend on 6/5: https://sheriff.deschutes.org/community/community-programs/events/.

We usually participate at the shred event at La Pine with them, so we should know when it gets scheduled. First keep an eye on the sheriff’s office website, but we may also share about it too.

Thanks for your interest!
