AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — Dr. Jeanie Shawhart, with the Texas Panhandle Poison Center, joined us in the studio to talk about an upcoming medicine cleanout event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Oct. 29.

Medication Cleanout is scheduled for Saturday at the TTUHSC Jerry H. Hodge School of Pharmacy, 1300 South Coulter.

The event is a drive-thru, drop-off format that would allow residents to dispose of their medications without leaving their cars. Yard signs will be posted to help drivers locate the drive-thru path.

TTUHSC said medications should be left in their original containers. The program also provides disposal services for syringes or sharps.
