In case you missed the last announcement, time is quickly approaching to properly dispose of the stuff, that you really don't want having around the house or the garbage. Important documents and expired medication! Shred & Med Take Back Day will be happening this Saturday, October 23rd! This free event will be taking place between 9am till 1pm at The Valley Mall in the south west corner parking lot by Sears (2529 Main Street Union Gap).

Who is putting this on & why?

The event is put on by Crime Stoppers & looks to help combat & prevent identity theft by shredding documents (bills / sensitive documents / tax forms / personal items). They are also offering a free way to safety dispose of your old prescription drugs and old medicine, helping prevent it from going back into the community and schools.

Just please make sure that the shred & medications are properly separated.
