Unwanted prescription drugs can be a hassle to dispose of. It’s not safe to leave them in medicine cabinets past their expiration date, and flushing them down a drain could pollute our water supply. Simply throwing them in the trash could land them in the hands of someone looking to abuse them.
Thankfully, our local communities are sponsoring prescription drug Take Back Days to give residents a way to safely and responsibly dispose of unwanted prescription drugs.
The sites will accept prescription and over-the-counter tablets and capsules, liquid medications, inhalers, creams and ointments, nasal sprays and pet medications. Not accepted are intravenous and injectable solutions as well as needles. Prescription medicines can be in their original prescription bottles with the label removed or can be placed in plastic bags.
