On Saturday, April 21, 2018, in an effort to protect our community members from Identity Theft AND in celebration of Earth Day, Goodyear Police Department hosted its first FREE Shred-a-Thon Event. Overall, we feel that this turned out to be a very successful event! Thanks to the hard work and organization of the Police Explorers, VIPS, Goodyear Traffic Unit, the Community Services Unit, Police administrative staff and ProShred, we were able to process 376 vehicles over the course of the 4 hour event with an average wait time of 40 minutes per vehicle. In addition to protecting the identity of our Goodyear Residents who chose to participate, we were able to recycle approximately 18,140 pounds of recyclable paper. As a result of everyone's efforts, the following resources have been conserved: 154 trees, 3,447 gallons of oil, 63,490 gallons of water, 43,536 kilowatt hours of energy and 907 cubic yards of landfill space. We also thank the community for participating and bringing along your patience as we worked hard to process every vehicle that attended as quickly as was possible. Due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback, we plan to host another event in the fall.
