Time to throw out old documents and prescription drugs because the Broward Sheriff’s Office will be holding a Shred-A-Thon and Operation Medicine Cabinet event to help residents get rid of the unwanted documents and prescription medicine.
The event not only helps with document clutter in the home but also prevents prescription drug abuse and identity theft. Sheriff Gregory Tony said BSO is “proud to offer these free services to protect the community.”
Residents can bring their unused, unwanted, or expired medications for safe disposal and receive a $5 gift card for turning in prescription meds. No needles are accepted. Gift cards are available while supplies last.
The limit for the shreddable documents containing sensitive information is two boxes per vehicle, no larger than 16 by 12 inches.
The Shred-A-Thon is held on Saturday, February 25, 2023, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Kings Point Clubhouse, 7620 Nob Hill Rd. Residents do not need to exit their vehicles.
