[ARCHIVED] Drive-Thru Shredding Event April 17

April 17 Drive-Thru Shredding Event

The City of Rancho Palos Verdes and EDCO are offering a free document/paper shredding event on Saturday, April 17 from 8-11 a.m. in the RPV City Hall overflow parking lot located at 30940 Hawthorne Boulevard.

Bring your sensitive, private and confidential documents (such as pay stubs, medical and insurance records, old income tax returns, and bank/mortgage statements) in your trunk or truck bed for secure on-site shredding to prevent or reduce the possibility of identity theft or fraud. There is a limit of three bankers boxes (approximately 10”x12”x15”) or paper bags per household. Documents with staples or paper clips are acceptable. However, remove all papers from metal three-ring binders. This event is offered free of charge to RPV residents to assist with the destruction of their personal documents. This event is not offered to businesses or residents of other cities. Please bring proof of RPV residency, such as a utility bill or ID.

Due to COVID-19 safety measures, residents must remain in their vehicle and wear a face covering.

To help minimize physical contact and reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19, this event will be exclusively for paper/document shredding. There will be no electronic waste collection or mulch giveaway. Please note that due to the shredding event, the Rancho Caninos Dog Park will be closed from 6:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. and the Palos Verdes Nature Preserve shuttle will not start running until 12 p.m.
