Supporting Newton Middle School

Shred and Recycling Services are Free

Arapahoe CU is covering all expenses for this event. However, we will also be taking donations. Cash and check donations will go directly to Newton Middle School to help out their programs. Donate online through the button shown below. Note that ALL donations go to Newton Middle School. Arapahoe CU is just the intermediary.

What we are doing: This is 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.

What To Bring?

Paper Shredding (on-site)

  • Bring old bank statements, check registers, receipts and anything else with personal information on it.
  • This event is fully paid, but we are asking for donations to Newton Middle School. If you are bringing a lot of items, please consider a higher donation. Otherwise, we ask that you maintain a limit of 5 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

We are happy to take most small electronics that you might have around the house. Old tablets, computers, phones, wires, stereos, etc. We can take some other electronics for an onsite fee. See below for restrictions.

  • TVs/ CRT Monitors Under 48” = $40 each
  • TVs Over 48” = $ 75 each
  • Console/Projection TVs = $100 each
