The Oro Valley Police Department is teaming with Wal-mart and the Shred-It company to host a Shred-a-Thon on Saturday, June 27.

The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in front of Wal-mart at the Oro Valley Marketplace, 2150 E. Tangerine Road.

Shredding sensitive documents, such as billing statements, receipts and documents containing personal information "can help prevent identity theft," a release said.

There is no need to remove staples or paper clips. The first two boxes are shred for free; additional boxes may be shredded for $10 per box.
