To help protect against identity theft, AARP Hawaiʻi wants to remind tax payers to safely shred sensitive documents at Access Information Management Destruction Plants on Maui, Oʻahu and Big Island on April 22. Participants can also help the hungry at the same time by bringing in food donations.

The Fraud Watch Network Shread-a-Thon comes annually after tax season when many people discard obsolete financial documents.

People can drop off up to two boxes of documents per vehicle from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 22. Bring donations of brown rice and canned goods to benefit Hawaiʻi’s hungry families through the Hawaiʻi Food Bank.

Staples and paperclips do not need to be removed from documents. 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. Walk-ups will not be allowed.

Access Corporation does require a signed document release form before they shred documents. Forms can be downloaded here. Or the document can be signed electronically through the Better Business Bureau, then printed or shown on a smart phone as you arrive. Click here to sign electronically.
