About 157 cars came through for the event held on April 20 at the Paradise Valley Police Department, according to a press release. In addition to 443 boxes of documents shredded, AZStrut collected about 1,549 pounds of electronics to recycle.

The total weight of the shredded documents was 10,780 pounds, or the equivalent of 92 trees, the release said.
