TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Pima County Sheriff's Department is hosting a shred-a-thon event this weekend.

With identity theft on the rise, PSCD and Shred-It have partnered to host a shredding event for residents of Pima County.

This free event will take place on May 17 from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Casas Church (10801 N. La Cholla Blvd.) Residents will be able to shred old documents and decrease the chance of thieves stealing and assuming their identity.

This is a drive-through shredding service; an attendant will come to the vehicle and transfer all documents to a bin for shredding.  No more than five file size boxes of paperwork will be accepted per vehicle. 

Documents from businesses are also not accepted. 

According to the PCSD release when the trucks are full the event will be over.
