Drive makes it easy to get rid of old drugs

Local law enforcement agencies will launch another installment of "Operation Medicine Cabinet," an opportunity for people to safely discard unused or expired prescription medications, with no questions asked. The effort is aimed at addressing the problem of prescription drug abuse. Citizens can stop by and drop off their medications for safe collection and disposal. Be aware that no biohazards or needles will be accepted and that the program is intended for private citizens of Pinellas County and not for commercial use. The event will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aug. 27 at the following dropoff locations in North Pinellas County:

• Walgreens, 1880 N Belcher Road, Clearwater

• Sweetbay Supermarket, 2460 East Bay Drive, Largo

• Walgreens, 3770 Tampa Road, Oldsmar

• Sweetbay, 1681 Main St., Dunedin

• Walgreens, 605 S Pinellas Ave., Tarpon Springs
