Scams and frauds are on the rise, but Mainers can take active steps to protect themselves and their families.  AARP Maine is once again collaborating with community partners to host free shredding events.  All of our events will also include safe disposal of your unwanted or expired medications.  Please join us and bring your friends and family!

Questions?  Call Jane at 1-866-554-5380 or email for information.

SHRED IT! Bring all sensitive paperwork that includes account numbers, birth dates, passwords, PINs, signatures and Social Security and/or driver’s license numbers. To protect your privacy, consider other items that include names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses. When in doubt, shred it! Please note: No need to remove staples or paperclips.  NOTE: For residential customers only. Limit of 4 boxes per person.

Your documents will be shredded on-site and you’ll have peace of mind knowing you’ve taken an important step in the fight against identity theft and fraud.

Get rid of unwanted or expired medications, too!  At each of these events, you can bring your unwanted or expired medications of any type for safe disposal through our law enforcement partners.  No limit.

Portland: Saturday, April 27, 2019 from 10AM-2PM (in collaboration with the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office)
