The Broward County Sheriff sponsors Shred-A-Thon events throughout the year that are open to all Broward County residents. Events are held at different locations in various cities in Broward County.
The Shred-A-Thon provides residents with a safe way to dispose of their personal documents, check stubs, credit card offers, receipts and any other paperwork that contains sensitive information. The service is free of charge and there’s a limit of five boxes per person. Documents destroyed in BSO’s Shred-A-Thon events are shredded by SafeGuard Document Destruction.
Operation Medicine Cabinet takes place during Shred-A-Thon events. The prescription drug take back program allows participants to turn in unused or expired prescription medication to receive a $5 gift card provided by the Sheriff’s Foundation of Broward County (while supplies last, limit one per family). Operation Medicine Cabinet is a safe way of properly disposing of your medications with no questions asked.
For more information about the Shred-A-Thon or the prescription drug take back event, please call (954) 831-8902.
