[ARCHIVED] Secure Documents and Paper Shredding Drop-Off at City Hall


City of Castle Hills will be hosting a paper shredding event on Saturday October 8, 2022 at City Hall, 209 Lemonwood Drive from 9 a.m. - 12 noon or until the truck reaches capacity. 

Identity theft and fraud crimes continue to be of great concern for all of us. The City of Castle Hills would like to help you avoid becoming a victim of identity theft and fraud, by keeping your personal information away from the hands of identity thieves. One of the methods identity thieves use to steal your information is combing through recycling and garbage for sensitive information that has been thrown away. 

For this reason, the City of Castle Hills recommends and encourages citizens to use a shredder (preferably cross-cut) for sensitive documents, such as credit card statements, financial statements, pre-approved credit card offers, old IRS tax forms, bank checks, household bills, and other documents that may contain sensitive information.

Community Shred event will be on site with one commercial-sized shredding truck for this event. Items no larger than staples and paper clips may be attached to the papers. Because of the popularity of the event each vehicle will only be allowed eight (8) standard size Banker style boxes of documents to be shredded.

This event is not for business documents. It is for personal documents only that contain personal information that if thrown out could lead to identity theft. 

Service will be on a first come, first served basis and limited to the capacity of the commercial-sized shredding truck. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause should the capacity be reached.
