Shred-A-Thon and Prescription Drug Take-Back Event this Weekend in Mesa

What: The Arizona Attorney General’s Office (AGO), Mesa Police Department, and Desert Ridge High School are hosting a FREE Shred-A-Thon and Prescription Drug Take-Back event this Saturday, November 20th, in Mesa.

This is a no-contact event. Volunteers and participants will follow current CDC social distancing guidelines. The public will be asked to stay in their vehicle and to place documents in the trunk of their car prior to arriving.

There is a five-box limit for shredded documents. Examples of items not accepted (but not limited to): binders, binder clips, electronics, inhalers, aerosol cans, lotions or liquids, needles, and hydrogen peroxide.

When: Saturday, November 20th at 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM (or until trucks are full)

Where: Desert Ridge High School, 10045 E. Madero Ave., Mesa, AZ 85209

Why: Shredding your personal or sensitive documents is an important step to protecting your identity. Getting rid of old prescription drugs is key in keeping opioids out of the hands of youth and reducing the risks for abuse.
