Time Sensitive Topic: Safe Medication Disposal Program National Initiative

This Saturday October 26, law enforcement officials will provide drop off sites for your unused medications.

Many communities have safe medication disposal programs for drop off of unused medications available year round, but this is not available universally. Check your community’s program by using search words such as “medication drop box program” and “safe medication disposal”.

Community programs collect expired or unused, prescribed and over-the-counter medications at police departments. Community members can utilize these drop boxes to ensure that medications will not end up in the wrong hands but rather properly disposed of.

Proper medication disposal also prevents accidental use, intentional misuse and protects the environment.
