Events that offer Broward residents free paper shredding and rewards for turning in old prescription drugs are offered by the Broward Sheriff’s Office.
The Shred-A-Thon events are intended to avoid identity theft by shredding personal papers with financial and other private information. The events also accept old unused prescription medications for safe disposal. In fact, they offer incentives for turning in prescriptions.
The reward is a $5 gift card, one per family while supplies last.
Events are offered occasionally usually 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. — however, hours may vary. We suggest referring to the website
- September 14, 590 S. Powerline Road, Deerfield Beach
- October 19 King’s Point, 7620 Nob Hill Road, Tamarac
For shredding, drop off a maximum of five boxes per vehicle, within specific size guidelines.
For information, phone 954-831-8902 or log onto the website.
