Medication Clean Out event successful

Posted: Updated:

The Texas Tech University School of Pharmacy and the Texas Panhandle Poison Control Center teamed up Saturday for a medication clean out event.

Folks had the chance to drop of any old or unused medications at the Pharmacy School so they can be disposed of properly.

"Whether its expired or they're just not taking it anymore, we want folks to get rid of those medications and get them out of their homes so that we can prevent poisonings prevent abuse prevent miss use and we'll dispose of the medication in an environmental friendly way," said event organizer Ronica Farrar.

Hundreds of cars stopped by to drop off their medication.
