The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office and Republic Services is holding another shredding event in Sisters Saturday. It’s where residents can shred documents, dispose of prescription drugs or other medications and properly dispose of old American flags.
Saturday’s event is at the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office sub-station at 703 N. Larch Street. It’s from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
The events is for residential items, not for businesses.
People who show up are asked to limit their documents to no more than four boxes. If you have more, you’re asked to call Republic Services at 541-352-2263 to determine how to dispose of your items.
DCSO says it can take paper clips and staples but cannot take plastic bags or three ring binders.
Medications accepted are prescription, patches, ointments, over the counter, vitamins, samples, and medications for pets. No sharps, thermometers or inhalers are allowed.
If you have an old, tattered American flag you wish to dispose of, you can do it at these events.
Food donations are also accepted during the event, which DCSO says will go to a local food bank.
One more event is planned this summer on Sept. 16 at Terrebonne Elementary School.
