CORAL SPRINGS - Two police agencies are hosting drug-collection programs Saturday.

In exchange for your unused or expired prescription medication, police will offer $5 gift cards. Coral Springs police will have their collection from 9 a.m. to noon at the drive-through in front of City Hall, 9551 W. Sample Road.

Consumers "don't even have to get out of their car," said Lt. Clyde Parry. "It can't be any easier."

Coral Springs is offering Walmart gift cards. For information, call 954-346-1792.

The Broward Sheriff's Office is also running campaigns aimed at keeping prescription drugs away from young people. Saturday's event is from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Jarvis Hall, 4505 Ocean Drive in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea.

In June, the Sheriff's Office will have drug buybacks in Lauderdale Lakes and North Lauderdale. Participants have the choice of a Walmart or a CVS gift card. For information, call 954-557-1124.
