It’s a fundraising event for the non-profit program.
“Crime Stoppers is a non-profit community based crime solving program working in conjunction with the police, media and the public to help make your community a safer place in which to live,” says a news release. “Crime Stoppers operates in over 20 countries worldwide and is the number one community based crime solving organization.”
People can bring their personal papers, CD’s and other materials containing confidential information to north parking lot at the Village Green Hotel to be shredded on site by Interior Mobile Shredding.
The minimum donation is $5 per box, with all proceeds going to the community group.

Electronics will also be accepted on site for recycling only — this does not entail destroying data on devices recycled.
