In an effort to assist citizens of El Paso County from being victimized by identity theft, Sheriff Richard Wiles has authorized the use of the Sheriff’s Office incinerator by members of the public to destroy personal documents no longer needed. The Sheriff’s Office understands citizens save documents that can accumulate and might not have the ability to safely dispose of them. Access to the incinerator will enable citizens of our community to feel secure knowing that information in their documents will not get into the wrong hands.

The incinerator, which is normally used to burn narcotics, will be available to the public twice a year. The first burn for this year is scheduled for Saturday, March 21st, 2015 from 10:00am to 2:00pm. A Sheriff’s Office employee will be present to ensure all documents are completely destroyed. Only personal documents will be accepted with a household limit of the amount of paper that would fit into one 30 gallon trash bag. The Sheriff’s Office incinerator is compliant with rules and regulations set by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

The Sheriff’s Office Incinerator is located at 12501 Montana, behind the Montana Patrol Station and the Region VIII Training Academy.

There is no cost to the public.

If there are any questions, please contact Public Affairs Director Chris Acosta at 915-538-2223.
