Free paper shredding and safe prescription disposal are offered by Broward Sheriff's Office exclusively for Broward residents.
Shred-A-Thon events are intended to avoid identity theft by shredding personal papers with private information. The events also accept old unused prescription medications for safe disposal. In fact, incentives are offered for turning in prescriptions.
