There is no cost to the public for up to 4 medium size boxes of personal documents. However donations of non-perishable food will be accepted to benefit local Terrebonne food banks.
The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office and Data Delete are collaborating on September 15th to provide residents the opportunity to safely destroy personal documents. Also you can learn identity theft prevention tips and what to do if you believe your identity has already been stolen. The event is intended for private residential document shredding and is not for business or company disposal.
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.
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At the event, the Sheriff’s Office will also have a deputy available to collect outdated or unwanted prescription medication.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 Larry Blanton.
Deschutes County encourages persons with disabilities to participate in all programs and activities. This event/location is accessible to people with disabilities.
