Medication dropoff planned for May 15

To help residents safely dispose of unused or expired medications, several law enforcement agencies have pooled efforts to provide dropoff locations. Residents may stop by the following locations between 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 15 and drop off their medications — no questions asked. No biohazards or needles will be accepted; the program is not intended for commercial use. The program, "Operation Medicine Cabinet," provides a safe way of destroying the pharmaceuticals through incineration, as opposed to flushing or sending the medication to the landfill. Dropoff locations will be at:

• Largo: Sweetbay Supermarket, 2460 East Bay Drive.

• Dunedin: Sweetbay Supermarket, 1681 Main St.

• Seminole: Kmart (West Parking Lot) 7949 113th St. N.

•Clearwater: Albertson's, 2170 Gulf-to-Bay Blvd., Clearwater; Westfield Countryside Mall, 27001 U.S. 19 N, Clearwater (near JCPenny's).
