Operation Medicine Cabinet Promotes Safety, Environment

The Hillsborough County Anti Drug Alliance (HCADA) is partnering with local law enforcement officials and Sweetbay Supermarkets to remove unused or expired medications from the home. The goal is to keep our kids safe and our environment clean.

On Saturday, August 21, from 8 a.m. - noon, residents can drop off their expired or unused medication anonymously at one of three Sweetbay Supermarket locations sponsored by the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, the Tampa Police Department, and the Temple Terrace Police Department.

Medicine collected through this program will be incinerated, as opposed to being flushed down the drain or sent to a landfill, to avoid polluting the environment. By removing the drugs from the homes, the community can do its part to help reduce drug abuse in youth.
