A convenient option for disposing of unwanted medications from the general public.
The kiosk is available for dropping off unused or expired prescription medication, unused or expired over-the-counter medications and pet medications. It is not for disposal of sharps container or syringes, inhalers or liquids.
The kiosk is as easy as dropping a letter off at a post office mail receptacle. Make sure to remove the Personal information from the bottles like name and prescription information.
Having a safe way to dispose of unused medicines removes them from the waste stream and can help prevent children from coming into contact with dangerous medications or the abuse of prescription drugs found in the home. Nationally, 62 percent of teens who admit taking medication for non-medical reasons say they get the drugs from medicine cabinets in their homes.
The kiosk will be monitored by the Delta Drugs Pharmacy and is in a secure location under camera surveillance.
