During Money Smart week the AARP Fraud Watch Network is holding Operation: Stop Scams events across the nation to help you protect yourself and your family. At these events, AARP will provide you with the opportunity to get your sensitive documents shredded – for free! Come to our shredding events to dispose of them safely, so you can fight back against fraud and identity theft.

Bring up to 3 grocery bags of documents to shred. Do NOT bring junk mail, newpapers, magazines, or other general recycling. For more information on what to shred, visit

  • You are welcome to witness the entire process on a monitor at the side of the truck.  
  • You do not need to worry about removing staples, paper clips, or even the file folders with the metal strip through them. Please make sure that there are no plastics, CDs, DVDs, x-rays, hard drives, 3 ring binders, binder clips, or anything else mixed in (paper ONLY).
