Community & Associations
The communities we serve are held together by the caring spirit and rugged-independence typical of Texas and its neighbors. We are proud to be a part of these communities, and it is our honor to support local businesses and nonprofits. Beyond our local communities, we also have state and national associations and affiliations. Here is a quick look at our shred days, professional associations and community involvement.
Due to COVID-19 this shred day will be moved to a future date, most likely in July.
Shred-It Day - Every April we support the fundraising efforts of the Amarillo Crime Stoppers and Student Crime Stoppers, but due to COVID-19, this year’s event has been moved to July 18th. You will still find us at the same location, the parking lot of Market Street on Georgia. There is no fee for shredding, but donations to the Crime Stoppers are welcome. This is one of their largest fundraisers of the year.
Saturday, July 18

Shred Out Cancer - The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center partners with DSS to host this shred day. We will be on-site shredding paper for the public and another organization will also be taking old and expired medications for proper disposal.
2020 Date TBA
