CLEARWATER – The Clearwater Police Department and the City’s Solid Waste/Recycling Department will be offering free shredding to Clearwater residents. The police department will also collect unwanted prescription drugs at the same time.

The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 30 at Countryside Mall, 27001 US Highway 19 N., closest to the intersection of US 19 and Countryside Boulevard south of Whole Foods.

Police officers and solid waste workers will collect and shred any documents Clearwater residents no longer need. Shredding will take place onsite by a certified shredding company to protect valuable information that may otherwise be compromised.

Clearwater Police will also accept old, unused or expired prescription drugs at the same time. This is part of a nationwide Medicine Cabinet operation that takes place twice a year. Bringing the drug to the police for proper disposal is much safer than throwing it in the trash or flushing it down the toilet.

Both drop points are for Clearwater residents, not businesses.

Needles and other types of hazardous materials will not be accepted. There is a limit of 10 boxes per vehicle for shredding.

Residents with questions can call the Solid Waste Operations Line at (727) 562-4920.
