Free Document Shredding Event

The Beaverton Police Department will be offering an opportunity for you to safely recycle documents containing personal information on Saturday, December 12, 2015 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. This event will be held at the Sunset Presbyterian Church located at 14986 NW Cornell Rd. Portland Oregon 97229.

Identity theft and fraud crimes continue to be of great concern for all of us. The City of Beaverton would like to help you avoid becoming a victim of identity theft and fraud, by keeping your personal information away from the hands of identity thieves. One of the methods identity thieves use to steal your information is combing through recycling and garbage for sensitive information that has been thrown away.

For this reason, the Beaverton Police Department recommends and encourages citizens to use a shredder (preferably cross-cut) for sensitive documents, such as credit card statements, financial statements, pre-approved credit card offers, old IRS tax forms, bank checks, household bills, and other documents that may contain sensitive information.

Shred-it will be on site with two commercial-sized shredding trucks for this event. Items no larger than staples and paper clips may be attached to the papers. Because of the popularity of this event each vehicle will only be allowed THREE BANKER STYLE BOXES of documents to be shredded.

This event is not for business documents. It is for personal documents only that contain personal information that if thrown out could lead to identity theft.

Service will be on a first come, first served basis and limited to the capacity of the commercial-sized shredding trucks from Shred-it. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause should the capacity be reached. Participants are encouraged to donate canned food to the Oregon Food Bank at the shredding event. Volunteers will be on site to accept these food donations.
Please do not contact Sunset Presbyterian Church with questions about this shredding event. All information related to this event is posted on the Beaverton Police Department’s web page and page.

Democratic Oregon Gov. Kate Brown was undoubtedly told by Democratic pollsters to stop blaming the police and federal investigators for the sustained violence in Portland. Are you Oregon voters nuts?
Smart move. 👀
How can I cancel my annoying "free" newspapers that come to my driveway each week, including 2 issues of the Oregonian? I have called multiple times, and each time I have been told that they would cancel me, but I still get the papers. I simply pick up the paper and carry them directly to the trash can. But I am over 70 years old, had recent major back surgery (I am now supposed to bend over for a few months), and it is not pleasant to do this especially on rainy days. Help!

Either you believe that our economic system is rigged and our political system broken or you don’t. Either you see the signs of oligarchy at the expense of democracy or you don’t. Either you see how money is ruining our governance and stewardship for the future or you don’t. Nothing else matters as much as taking $ out of politics. I think it's beyond obvious, and that Bernie Sanders is our only option to start the changes necessary to make things better for ALL of us. I'm tired of the established limo-riding "realists", who throw money at wars, dine with lobbyists, pamper corporations and line their own pockets while the middle class shrinks, working poor struggle, schools suffer, bridges and social services crumble, and legislation stagnates. Bernie Sanders has been in this fight his entire adulthood. His priorities are the same as mine. But I'm also excited to support Sanders, because if elected, we the people will have a fed-up and organized populace behind him the likes of which we haven't seen in our lifetime. Don't settle. Think bigger. Let's do this.
