As you make your spring cleaning list this year, don't forget to check-off your medicine cabinets.
When old medications are left to collect dust, they become potential sources of poisoning or abuse.
One local program helps area residents dispose of expired or unused medications safely and easily.
The Medication Cleanout is hosted by The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) School of Pharmacy's Texas Panhandle Poison Center.
The event will be conducted using a drive-thru, drop-off format so participants don't even need to leave their vehicles.
Only household medications in their original contains will be accepted at the Medication Cleanout.
The event is happening Saturday, April 27 at the Texas Tech Physicians Medical Pavilion from 10:00am to 2:00pm.
