Time to gather up old documents and prescription drugs because, after a year-long hiatus, the Broward Sheriff’s Office will be back with its Shred-A-Thon and Operation Medicine Cabinet events.

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 that will be accepted.

The service is free of charge, and there is a limit of two boxes per person. Just drive up in your car, and your items will be safely destroyed.  Documents destroyed at all BSO’s shred-a-thons are shredded by SafeGuard Document Destruction.

Residents who turn in unused prescription medication are eligible to receive $5 provided by the Sheriff’s Foundation of Broward County. This is while supplies last and are limited to one per family.

Join Sheriff Gregory Tony and arrive early. Cities around Broward County are welcome to participate.

The Shred-A-Thon will be held Saturday, July 31, 2021, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the City of Parkland Equestrian Center 8350 Ranch Road.
