(QUEEN CREEK, AZ) - A free community shred-a-thon and prescription drug take back event is coming to Queen Creek this month.
The event is scheduled for December 17th and provides an opportunity for community members to properly dispose of sensitive documents, such as bank statements.
WHEN: Saturday, December 17, 2022
WHERE: San Tan Flats 6185 W. Hunt Hwy, Queen Creek, AZ
TIME: 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
"The best assistance that I can provide to you as a victim of identity theft is to do everything we can to prevent you from ever being a victim," said County Attorney Kent Volkmer. "Once your identity is stolen, there is very little we can do to make you whole or give you your life back."
The December 17th event also features a prescription drug take back, where residents can dispose of old or unused prescription medication.
While this is a free event, you are encouraged to bring donations that go to benefit Pinal County abuse shelters. Donations can include items like toothpaste, shampoo, soap and feminine products.
