CORAL SPRINGS, FL – Do you have important documents that need to be shredded?
Coral Springs Police Department, in partnership with SafeGuard Document Destruction, is organizing a “Shred-A-Thon” on July 25 from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Sportsplex (2575 Sportsplex Drive).
According to the city, it’s a crime prevention program with the goal of reducing identity theft by properly disposing of information-sensitive documents.
The free, touchless document shredding event is for Coral Springs residents only.
Here’s what you need to know about the event, according to the city:
- All residents will be required to place their drivers’ licenses on the front dashboard as they pull up in their cars.
- There is a limit of four file size cardboard boxes or reusable bins per vehicle, and plastic/garbage bags will not be accepted.
- Boxes and bins cannot be larger than 15x12x10 and must be in the trunk or in an area easily accessible to ensure no interaction with event staff (no walk-up shredding available).
- For this event, the police department will not accept additional boxes for a donation to the city’s community programs.
- Residents are asked to make sure there is no trash or other items, such as plastic or metal rings, bingers or clamps, in boxes.
- This is a first-come, first-serve event. Once the truck reaches capacity, no additional paperwork will be accepted.
If there’s bad weather, the event will be rescheduled. For more information, call 954-344-1833 or visit.
