Residents looking to safely and securely dispose of confidential or sensitive documents are encouraged to take advantage of a free drive-through, on-site contactless paper-shredding event the City is hosting in April, May, June, July and August.
The events are scheduled to take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays in the South Coast Air Quality Management District parking lot located at 21865 Copley Drive on the following dates:
Advanced registration is not required. To prepare for the event, make sure documents are not in binders or sheet protectors, or fastened with rubber bands or binder clips. Staples and paperclips are OK. Make sure to remove plastic bags, plastic file tabs, CDs and other hard items. Place documents in banker-size boxes or bags (maximum two per household) in the trunk or rear of vehicle. Limited to two(2) banker boxes, equivalent to a single 13-gallon plastic trash bag.
When arriving on site, remain in the vehicle and follow staff directions to proceed to the designated paper shredding location where the boxed or bagged documents will be retrieved and shredded while you wait.
