SaddleBrooke Ranch will hold its first community shredding event on October 7 from 9:00 a.m. until noon or until the truck is full.

Residents of both SaddleBrooke Ranch and SaddleBrooke are encouraged to bring their old documents and electronics to be shredded and recycled. The event is sponsored by Community Church at SaddleBrooke.

Cost is $5 per box of documents or electronics. Shredding services provided by Beacon Secure, an Arizona non-profit corporation. All proceeds will go to Youth on Their Own – YOTO.
