use preg_replace like this:
$src = 'Text and other <a href = \"#\">html</a><script>blaha</script><B>blah</B>';
$cleaned = preg_replace("(<script>.*<\/script>)","",$src);

Open in new window

this is more accurate (it works for not empty <script> and is case insensitive):
$cleaned = preg_replace("/(<script.*>.*<\/script>)/i","",$src);
