The Manatee County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday will hold an Operation Medicine Cabinet event, giving residents a chance to safely disposed of unused and expired medicines.
Safe disposal reduces the risk of medicine mix-ups, tainted dosing or the drugs ending up in the wrong hands, according to the sheriff's office.
There will also be presentations on Medicare and medication management.
The event will run from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday at Freedom Village, 6406 21st Ave. W., Bradenton.
The sponsor is offering educational presentations, a goody bag and refreshments for those who attend.
