Note, this is a new Salt Lake City location, selected to accommodate the large crowds we expect to attend.

Once again, AARP Utah will host a shredding event as part of AARP's nationwide Operation: Stop Scams events in April and May, aimed at protecting people from identity theft and fraud. This year's shredding event will be held at Timpanogos High School's parking lot on Saturday, May 11 from 9:00am--11:00am. This event is free and open to the public, but if you're an AARP member we ask that you bring your membership card. Shred-it is generously offering its services again this year, and will be shredding all documents on site.
