PUBLIC USE OF INCINERATOR

June 12, 2018

El Paso, Texas – 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 incinerator, which is normally used to burn narcotics, will be available to the public on Saturday, June 16, 2018, from 9:00 am to 11:00 am.

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.

A Sheriff’s Office employee will be present to ensure all documents are completely destroyed. Only personal documents will be accepted. One 30 gallon trash bag will be accepted per household, and may only contain paper. No plastic or metal will be accepted. 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 Information Officer Leslie Antunez at 915-538-2119.
