The Broward Sheriff's Office will partner with Lowe's Home Improvement stores to hold a Shred-A-Thon and Operation Medicine Cabinet prescription drug take-back event Saturday morning in Pompano Beach.

9 a.m. – noon, Saturday, Sept. 8, 2012

Lowe’s Home Improvement

1851 N. Federal Hwy., Pompano 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 $5.00 gift card (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.

The Shred-A-Thon events began in Broward County in May 2008, as a joint initiative by Broward Sheriff Al Lamberti and the Florida Attorney General’s Office, with the assistance of UNISHRED and The National Association of TRIADS.

For more information on the Shred-A-Thon, please call (954) 321-4100. For more information about the prescription drug “take back” event or prescription drug prevention presentations, contact Jonathon Fishman at 954.831.8902.
