Arapahoe Credit Union Free Shred-a-Thon

and Electronic Recycling 

Supporting Newton Middle School

We are providing fully-paid, onsite shredding. However, we hope you will pay forward this service through a donation to Newton Middle School. Every dime you send goes directly to their student programs. We will also be collecting donations on the day of the event.

All services are provided at Arapahoe CU's sole discretion. We reserve the right to refuse service, make changes or cancel services at any time and for any reason.

There will be two lanes and two trucks from 9:00 until 11:00. At 11 we will start running four lanes to four shred trucks to keep things moving along until 2:00. Additionally, catering will be provided by Mac 'N Noodles from 11:00 until 2:00!


Don't miss ACU's annual Shred-a-Thon: A free community shred and electronic recycling event with shredding, an on-site auction, and small electronics recycling. As always, we are asking for any support you can give for Newton Middle School programs. Money raised will go ounrestricted to use as Newton sees fit.

Feel free to bring any documents for ON-SITE destruction (watch it happen!). Bring old bank statements, check registers, receipts and anything else with personal information on it. Additionally, feel free to bring your small electronics and we will get those recycled as well! (Unfortunately, we are no longer able to accept ANY box/ tube/rear projection screens. We also are unable to offer electronic data destruction.)

9:00 am until 2:00 pm

This round, we are in Newton Middle School's parking lot just off of Arapahoe Rd and Colorado Blvd! We have four shred trucks coming to keep things moving.

Directions: Head to the corner of Arapahoe Rd. and Colorado Blvd. where you will see our branch on the west side and Newton MS on the east. Head north on Colorado and take your first right into the parking lot where you will see the shred trucks. Address: 4001 E. Arapahoe Rd, Littleton, CO 80122 . We will have signs to help you get where you're going.

What to Bring

For shredding, we can take almost anything. Additionally, please note that newspapers and junk mail do not need to be shredded - documents are all crooks are looking for.

For current members, in some cases, we may be able to provide advance drop-off options. Call us at 303-740-7063 and we will see what we can do for you!

Electronic Recycling

As for electronics, we will take your small electronics with an on-site truck. As always, we will try to accommodate everything we can, but there are some restrictions. Unfortunately, we are unable to take any tube televisions/monitors, refrigerators or alkaline batteries. We may additionally refuse other electronics if we have to (at our discretion), but again, we will do absolutely anything we can to get you taken care of. For a complete list of acceptable electronics, click here.

Thank You, Mr Gibbons

Don't worry, we definitely aren't expecting the default amounts. This is simply the easiest way for our Communication Department to receive donations.
