The Broward Sheriff's Office will hold a Shred-A-Thon and Operation Medicine Cabinet prescription drug take back event this weekend in Deerfield Beach.
The prescription drug take back program, operating under the name Operation Medicine Cabinet, 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).
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. There's a limit of five boxes per person.
Documents destroyed in BSO's Shred-A-Thon events are shredded by SafeGuard Document Destruction. For more information about the Shred-A-Thon or the prescription drug take back event, please call (954) 831-8902.
