October West Memphis Shred Event

Posted on 09/29/23

AARP Arkansas invites those in and around West Memphis, Arkansas, to participate in a free opportunity to shred confidential documents, Saturday, October 21, from 9 a.m. to noon, at the Kroger Plaza, 300 West Service Road, West Memphis, 72301.

Registration is required and pre-registration is strongly encouraged for fastest service. Register here!

Follow signage from the service road into the Kroger parking lot and help us keep the line moving safely.

What to bring:

  • Up to three paper sacks or bankers boxes of confidential documents you need to shred.
  • Donations for a local food pantry are optional but encouraged.

Avoid bringing:

  • Plastic bags; plastic items and large containers will be returned to the vehicle.
  • Containers that are too heavy to easily lift from your vehicle.
  • Large quantities of business documents; this event is designed for personal documents.


  • Do I need my AARP member card? No, but please pre-register so we can check you in quickly.
  • What if I forget to pre-register? You can register on site with our volunteers by providing your first and last name along with your email address.
  • Why do you need my email? AARP's On Arrival system requires an email address. You may receive a follow up survey or thank you. You can always opt out of emails from AARP.
  • Can I come through the line more than once? We register cars each time one comes through the line so if you've had a positive experience and want to go and pick up a friend, they would need to go through the registration process on the second trip as we could not re-register you.
  • What if my friend comes with me? Can we have six boxes? We would prefer three boxes per car to keep the line moving.
  • Is a donation required to the food pantry? No, that is completely voluntary. This is a free event.

If you have any additional questions, please email us at ar@aarp.org. If you have challenges with online registration, you can register by calling 877-926-8300 and saying you would like to register for the shred event in West Memphis, Arkansas.
