Save the Date!
Medications can be disposed of in a number of ways, but not all methods are safe nor effective. While medications, in many cases, can be disposed of at home, take back programs are highly recommended to increase safety and to ensure that each medication is disposed of in an environmentally friendly way. Take back events are a one-stop drop off opportunity for prescription and over-the-counter drugs including but not limited to controlled substances, ointments, lotions, inhalers, patches, needles, e-cigarette devices (with batteries removed) and even pet medications.
