Logan's Run - William F. Nolan

No old people allowed. At 21, they get rid of you, thanks to some fancy biometric tracking. If you don't think that is a great idea, then special operatives named Sandmen, armed with weaponry that discharges a variety of different ammuntion hunt you down.

Logan is a Sandman, and he comes to realise what is going on is wrong. He ends up a runner, and encounters all sorts of bizarre things on his quest for Sanctuary.

It is when the people are 30 that they 'get rid' of them. Not 21!

Nope, sounds like you have only seen the movie. They changed it for that because actors are generally old, I think.

"As Logan approached, the man held out one of the sheets. He accepted it.

REJECT SLEEP! RUN

IF THERE ARE ENOUGH RUNNERS
THERE WON'T BE ENOUGH HOMERS.
THERE WON'T BE ENOUGH DS MEN
IT IS WRITTEN THAT THE LIFE
SPAN OF MAN IS THREE SCORE
YEARS AND TEN, SEVENTY YEARS!
DON'T SETTLE FOR TWENTY-ONE.
RUN! REJECT SLEEP!"
