The Payson Regional Medical Center's Senior Circle Shred-a-thon was a big success.
Jim Lindly, who conducted the event for the Arizona Attorney General's Office at the Senior Circle, said, "I would call it a fantastic success. We took in around 3,800 pounds worth of paper. This means we baled about three large bales of paper that will be recycled."
Lindly sent those who requested them,
certificates of destruction.
The Shred-a-thon was Sept. 19 at the Senior Circle building and was conducted with six volunteers, along with Robin Stamp from the attorney general's office, said Kathy Coombes, Senior Circle advisor.
She said the event was so successful, the Senior Circle hopes to have another in the spring.
The Senior Circle serves as a satellite office for the Arizona Attorney General.
The satellite office provides community-based venues that make it easier for residents to obtain information on consumer fraud, civil and victims' rights.
It is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Volunteers staff the offices, make educational presentations for community groups, distribute educational materials at community events and assist individuals with filing complaints or referrals for assistance.
The Senior Circle is at 215 N. Beeline Highway. For more information regarding state services available at the satellite office, call (866) 358-6661.
