Nashville, TENN. – Davidson County Sheriff Daron Hall announced Wednesday the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) “Sheriff’s Safety Days” will make its way to Madison Square Shopping Center, 721 Madison Square, Saturday from 9 a.m. – Noon. Sheriff’s Safety Days gives residents an opportunity to safely dispose of and recycle household items as well as shred personal documents at no charge. The event is in partnership with 7th District Councilman Anthony Davis.
The DCSO will accept up to four boxes of personal documents for shredding, eyeglasses for donation, cell phones for donation and/or safe disposal, hard drive removal and destruction, a safe and secure drop for unwanted/out-of-date prescription medications, child fingerprinting, and safe disposal of electronics; meaning anything with a plug accepted. Paint or other hazardous waste, scrap metal, construction material, or household items are not accepted. All other recyclables should be taken to a local convenience center.
“Last month’s event in Donelson was a success and we look forward to another productive day this Saturday,” Sheriff Daron Hall said. “It’s a great chance for our employee volunteers to reach out and give back to our neighbors and is also a fantastic opportunity for residents to safely dispose of many items they have probably been hanging onto because they just didn’t know what to do with them.”
