Gather your sensitive documents that need shredding and your unused medications!

When and Where

The Chinooks are teaming up with Port Washington State Bank to host a community-wide shredding event on Saturday, April 24 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Thiensville Village Park located at 250 Elm Street. This will be a drive-thru event where you will remain in your vehicle.

What to Bring

A shredding truck will be collecting and professionally shredding (on site) your sensitive documents. Your papers will be finely shredded and then the paper recycled. Note that the shredders are strong enough to shred paper clips, staples, hanging folders, file folders, magazines, and hardbound books. However, the following cannot be shredded: metal (aside from paper clips and staples), binder clips, 3-ring binders, plastic, DVD’s, CD’s, cell phones, and batteries.

Also bring your unused medications in a clear plastic bag. These will be safely disposed of by the Thiensville Police Department. 


Note that due to the high demand for shredding and the limited space in the shredding truck, each vehicle is allowed 2 boxes or 2 grocery bags of papers. Moreover, when the truck is full, unfortunately we cannot accept additional materials to shred, so please plan accordingly. 

Free Lunch

Gill and Chinooks representatives will be on site to hand out pre-packaged lunches consisting of a brat or hot dog, chips, and a soda for the first 500 participants. Also included will be information about tickets for the Chinooks baseball games.
