DCSO free shredding, drug disposal, food drive in Sisters


The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office in partnership with SecureShred and NeighborImpact will host a free shredding event Saturday.

This event will take place at the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Sisters substation, located at 703 N. Larch Avenue, starting at 10:00 am and concluding at 12:00 pm.


The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office and SecureShred of Oregon are collaborating on for this event to provide residents the opportunity to safely destroy personal documents and learn identity theft prevention tips.

The event is intended for private residential document shredding and is not for business or company disposal. At the event, the Sheriff’s Office will also have information how to avoid becoming an identity theft victim and what to do if you believe your identity has already been stolen.

No advance document sorting is necessary as shredding equipment can destroy paperwork with paper clips or staples attached. File folders and binders may also be shredded. There is no cost to the public for up to 4 medium size boxes of personal documents.

Donate a Non-Perishable Food

The Sheriff’s Office is asking event participants to consider bringing a donation of non-perishable food to benefit the NeighborImpact Food Bank.

Drug Disposal Program

At the event, the Sheriff’s Office will also have a deputy available to collect outdated or unwanted prescription medication. No needles or over-the-counter drugs will be accepted.

The drug disposal program is designed to keep unwanted or unused medications away from abusers, children and animals. The program is also intended to reduce negative environmental impact to the water, soil and landfill’s by using proper disposal practices.
