Personal Document Shredding Event, Food Drive, and Drug Disposal In La Pine

The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, Mid Oregon Credit Union and Data Delete of Oregon are collaborating to provide residents the opportunity to safely destroy personal documents and learn identity theft prevention tips. This event will take place at the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Substation in La Pine, 51340 Highway 97, on Saturday May 2, 2015 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. There is no cost to the public for up to four medium size boxes of personal documents. 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.

The event is intended for private residential document shredding and is not for business or company disposal. The Sheriff’s Office and Mid Oregon Credit Union will also have information available on how to prevent identity theft and what to do if you believe your identity has already been stolen.

A deputy will be onsite to collect outdated or unwanted prescription medication. No needles or over-the-counter drugs will be accepted. “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 Larry Blanton. 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.

The Sheriff’s Office is asking event participants to consider bringing a donation of non-perishable food to benefit the La Pine Community Kitchen.
