AARP Fraud Watch Network Shred-a-Thon to be held April 28

AARP Hawai‘i and Access Corporation are sponsoring a document shredding for sensitive documents at the Access Information Management Destruction Plant in West Hawai‘i on April 28 in at 73-4164 Huli Koa Drive in Kailua-Kona.

The public is asked to also help the hungry at the same time by bringing donations, rice, canned good or monetary donations for The Food Basket.

Members of the public can drive up and drop off up to two boxes of documents per vehicle from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.

The Fraud Watch Network Shred Fest comes just after tax season when many people discard their obsolete financial documents.

Due to safety and traffic-flow concerns, people will not be allowed to get out of their car and boxes and bags will not be returned. Walk-ups will not be allowed. Staples and paperclips do not need to be removed from documents.

Access Corporation requires a signed document release form before they will shred your documents. Forms can be downloaded here: Agreement for Secure Destruction Service and signed before you drop off your papers.
