Popular BSO Shred-A-Thon/Operation Medicine Cabinet Piles Up Big Numbers

Post Date:10/16/2018 11:00 AM

The Broward Sheriff’s Office offers the Shred-A-Thon events countywide year-round to assist residents with identify theft prevention by shredding away documents with sensitive and personal information – boxes at a time.

BSO’s drive-through Shred-A-Thon & Operation Medicine Cabinet events are hosted at locations throughout the county throughout the year.  Annually, Weston residents take advantage of the opportunity to shred up to five boxes of documents and/or properly dispose of medications and keep them out of the hands of those who shouldn't have them.

This year the event drew 386 vehicles in a three hour period!  

Participants disposed of 296.6 pounds of uncontrolled medications and 11.6 pounds of controlled medications

Helping to keep identity theft at bay, participants disposed of 21,460 pounds of documents. 

Way To Go WESTON!   

If you were unable to take advantage of this year's event, BSO will have another next year.
It will be posted on our Calendar of Events and in our NewsdayTuesday eNewsletter.
