The Broward Sheriff's Office will hold a Shred-A-Thon and Operation Medicine Cabinet prescription drug take-back event Saturday at the Pride Center in Wilton Manors.
10 a.m. – 1 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 22, 2012

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.
