Operation Medicine Cabinet in Broward County
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -- Operation Medicine Cabinet allows residents in Broward County to turn in unused or expired prescription medication.
In return, families will receive a $5 gift card during the prescription drug "take back" event Saturday morning in Davie. Residents can also safely dispose of their personal documents, check stubs, credit card offers, receipts and other paperwork that has their personal information during the Shred-A-Thon. It's free of charge, but there's a limit of five boxes per person.
A Broward Sheriff's office press release says both events started in May 2008.
