Protect yourself from identity theft by safely shredding sensitive documents at the Access Information Management Destruction Plant on Maui on Saturday, April 22 from 8 a.m to noon. You can also help the hungry at the same time by bringing food donations.
AARP Hawaii and Access Corporation are sponsoring the free document shredding and food collection event at the Maui Record and Destruction Center at 821 Eha Street near Sack N Save in the Wailuku Industrial Area.
The Fraud Watch Network Shred-a-Thon comes just after tax season when many people discard their obsolete financial documents.
People can drive up and drop off up to 2 boxes of documents per vehicle from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 22. Bring donations of food and canned goods to benefit Maui’s hungry families through the Maui Food Bank. Monetary donations to the Maui Food Bank will also be accepted.
Staples and paperclips do not need to be removed. 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. Drop offs will be limited to 2 bags or boxes per vehicle. Walk-ups will not be allowed.
Access Corporation requires a signed document release form before they will shred your documents. Forms can be downloaded here and should be signed before you drop off your papers. Or the document can be signed electronically through the Better Business Bureau, then printed or shown on a smart phone as you arrive. Go here to sign electronically.
Forms will also be available on site on the day of the event.
