Broome County to Host “Shred & Med” Event at SUNY Broome

BINGHAMTON, NY – Broome County, along with the Family Violence Prevention Council’s Elder Abuse Prevention Committee, the Broome County Sheriff’s Office and Bert Adams Disposal announced a free “Shred & Med” event to be held at SUNY Broome from 9:30 A.M. until 11:30 AM on Wednesday, June 21st.

“Prescription medications in the wrong hands have harmful and potentially deadly consequences,” Said Broome County Executive Jason Garnar. “Unfortunately, senior citizens are usually targeted because they are more likely to possess prescription drugs and are often unable to defend themselves from an attack.”

Aside from collecting prescription drugs, there will also be free document shredding as well. Each person can bring one bag or box of papers that may contain sensitive information like bank statements, medical records, bills and other personal document that could lead to identity fraud.

For more information on the event call 778-2411.
