Crime Stoppers hosting document shredding, medication disposal event

Yakima law enforcement will be holding an event for residents to shred old documents and get rid of unused, expired or unwanted prescription medications.

The event will be on Saturday Apr. 29 as part of Take Back Your Prescription Meds Day and Identity Theft Awareness. It will go on from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Solarity Credit Union located at 110 North 5th Ave. off Martin Luther King Way in Yakima.

Disposable materials are limited to a maximum of two banker boxes or three shopping bags. Documents and medicine must be clearly separated.
