Safeguard Palm Beach Logo-Vertical

Safeguard Palm Beach, along with the Palm Beach Police and Fire Departments, will be sponsoring a Community Shredding, Medication Disposal and Electronics Recycling & Destruction event to be held at a new location on Friday, November 3, 2023, at St. Edwards Parish Hall, 165 N. County Road, Palm Beach.  The location will be in the parking lot behind Green’s Pharmacy and Amici’s off of Sunrise Avenue. 

Identity Theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in the world today and that makes properly disposing of confidential documents even more important than ever. Residents and those with small or home businesses are welcome to take part.  This event is not designed to accommodate large businesses or companies and there is a limit of 5 boxes per vehicle.

This event will also offer an expired medication bin. Improperly disposed medications can be extremely detrimental to the environment as well as any adults or children in the home.  Please bring your unwanted or expired medications so that they can be disposed of properly. We will also be accepting small, rechargeable batteries and portable rechargeable devices such as flashlights and digital cameras to be properly disposed of.  Please ensure that any personal data is removed prior to drop-off.  

Excess IT Hardware is a social impact electronics recycler that will be offering their services at this community event free of charge. Excess IT Hardware collects, refurbishes and recycles used electronics to help benefit the community.  At this event, they will accept PCs, Laptops, Servers, Networking Hardware, LCD monitors, cell phones, office phones and all other forms of IT Hardware.  Excess IT Hardware will have a hard drive crusher to use to destroy drives on-site should residents want to watch their drives be destroyed (the hard drive must already be removed from the computer).
