Pharmacy: Medication disposal

 

An estimated 250 million pounds of unused medicines are improperly disposed of each year, thereby threatening our ecosystem and overall health. Improper disposal also increases the risk of accidental poisoning and drug abuse.

Bring your medicines, in their original labeled container, to one of our locations for safe, free disposal.
