Have old prescriptions, pills and medications around the house? Keep your family safe by getting RID of those this Saturday. Don't flush them down the toilet as those meds will eventually end up in our water supply and waterways.

Medications that are prescription or over-the-counter can be dropped off at any of the locations below this Saturday, October 24th, 2020. Pills, patches or capsules can all be dropped off and will be disposed of properly.

Drop-offs are anonymous and paperwork does not need to be filled out.

By disposing of your medicine cabinet drugs in this manner, you're not just keeping them out of our water supply but keeping them out of the hands of people who shouldn't be taking them.
