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.
The shredding allows up to five boxes per vehicle, within specific size guidelines. Events include 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. select days, including
