No one wants to be a victim of fraud and one of the best ways to protect yourself from identity theft is simply to shred confidential documents such as medical records, credit card and bank statements, and old tax records.

AARP Arkansas will host our FREE Northwest Arkansas Shred Fest on Saturday, September 21, 2024, from 9 a.m. to noon, at Farmington United Methodist Church, 355 Southwinds Road, Farmington, AR. Follow the signs on the day of the event to keep traffic flowing in the correct direction.

Shredding will be done on-site, rain or shine:

  • Limit three small boxes per car (these have to be lifted by volunteers)

  • This is for personal documents, not businesses

  • PRE-REGISTER for faster service

  • Please no plastic bags, binders, or other items that could damage the industrial shred trucks

If you have difficulty registering via the link, please call 1-877-926-8300 and request assistance registering for the Farmington Arkansas Shred Fest.

While you’re here, contribute non-perishable food items for local food pantries by bringing an item to drop in the box (please note, AARP Arkansas can not accept cash donations).

Women holds a box full of food pantry items with a thank you sign in front.
