Community Shred Day 2018

Saturday, April 21, 2018 - 9:00am to 12:00pm

Saturday, April 21, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. (or until full)

Community Shred Day is back! Thanks to Yakima Products, the City will be hosting Shred Day at the Yakima headquarters (formerly the West End Building) at 4101 Kruse Way, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. (or until truck is full) on Saturday, April 21. Residents of Lake Oswego (and those within the Urban Services Boundary) may bring 2 paper shopping bags of confidential documents including bank, credit card, health care, tax forms and other sensitive information for shredding. Staples, paper clips, hanging folders, and rubber bands need to be removed.

Shred Day is a very popular event and wait times can be significant - we can only move as fast as the trucks can shred. Please help us minimize traffic impacts and ensure that everyone has the opportunity to shred their documents by following the mandatory guidelines:

  • You may only bring 2 supermarket size shopping bags for shredding. We will not accept more than 2 bags per household.
  • No loose material will be accepted.
  • Follow all traffic rules and obey the instructions given by Lake Oswego Police.
  • No walk ups are allowed. For safety and security reasons, you may not park your car and walk up with bags for shredding or leave them on the ground and walk away. The City is not responsible for papers left behind.

If you are unable to participate in this event, there are other secure, convenient options available to shred your documents - for example, the UPS Store or the Postal Annex, will shred documents for a fee.

To avoid causing traffic issues, please do not show up before 8:30 a.m.
