DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - If you have some personal documents or just a lot of useless papers that you need to dispose of, there is an event just for you!

Sunset Memorial Park is holding a community paper-shredding event Thursday. The drive-thru event is free and will be from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Organizers say the goal is to protect against identity theft and promote environmental sustainability.

“It helps with recycling, but also we want to ward off any kind of identity theft that can be a real problem,” says event organizer Kendall Shows. “People throw their bills in the trash and that’s how it starts. WRC [Wiregrass Rehabilitation Center] comes out to ensure data destruction. They are on site. They take your items securely and they shred them back at their place.”

Sunset is also partnering with the Wiregrass Pet Rescue and Adoption Center to collect pet items and donations.

The address is 1700 Barrington Road, Dothan.
