Cleveland County Sheriff Joe Lester and District Attorney Greg Mashburn urge everyone to clean out their medicine cabinets and bring all expired or unused medications to the Prescription Drug Round-Up scheduled Saturday at various locations throughout the county.

People may dispose of old or unused prescriptions from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the following sites: 

Homeland, 10700 S. Pennsylvania Ave., Oklahoma City Homeland, 2600 W. Robinson Street, Norman Crest Foods, 1315 N. Eastern Ave., Moore Super C Mart, 609 N. 3rd Street, Noble

Cleveland County Sheriff’s deputies will be posted at each store to collect medications. Following the round-up, investigators will properly dispose of the prescriptions.

“Sheriff Lester and I continue to be dedicated to this program due to our concern for the youth of Cleveland County,” Mashburn said.

Lester said he supports any program that keeps citizens safe especially children.

“I hope people take advantage of this opportunity and gather up all their old prescriptions to bring to the round-up,” Lester said.

“This will prevent people from getting their hands on prescriptions they don’t need.”
