Supporting Newton Middle School

Don't miss ACU's annual Shred-a-Thon: A free community shred and electronic recycling event with shredding, small electronics recycling, and a food truck. We are asking for any support you can give towards Newton Middle School student programs. Arapahoe CU will be providing free, on-site shredding and electronic recycling.

Arapahoe Credit Union would rather spend our marketing dollars providing a service and raising money for students than simply advertising. Whatever you want to send to Newton Middle School is great and feel free to still rid yourself of old documents at no cost.

We will be collecting donations on the day of the event, but certainly feel free to donate here, online!

What To Bring?

  • Paper Shredding (on-site)
    • Bring old bank statements, check registers, receipts and anything else with personal information on it.
    • No limit with donation over $5-$10/ Box! ACU members are always free! Otherwise, we ask that you maintain a limit of 3 banker boxes or less worth of shredding. If you have more than this, please contact us to discuss what we can do for you. We'll see what we can do! We ask ACU members with more than five boxes to simply let us know in advance so that we can take care of you efficiently.
  • Electronic Recycling
    • Small electronics are ok!
    • Tube/ Box TVs-- not so much. You can recycle large TVs and monitors for an on-site fee.
    • Large appliances are also restricted.
    • Light bulbs are not allowed, please.
    • Exact details on acceptable electronic recycling can be found here.

  • This round, we are back in Newton Middle School's parking lot just off of Arapahoe Rd and S Albion Way. Directions: Take Arapahoe Rd. west from I-25 and head to the corner of Arapahoe Rd. and S Albion Way where you will take a right on S Albion Way. Enter the parking lot where you will see the shred trucks. We will have signs to help you get where you're going. You will make it through the shred process much faster if you approach the lot from the East side (making a right into the parking lot).

    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!
