Prescription Drug Drop-Off Day

Safely dispose of expired and unused prescriptions

It is prescription drug drop-off day in many communities. It’s an opportunity to clear your medicine chest of expired and unused prescription medications in a secure, environmentally-friendly manner. Common prescription drugs being misused are opioid pain relievers (such as oxycodone), anti-depressants, and stimulants. Recent studies indicate 24 per cent of teens reported misusing prescription medications at least once within the previous year. Most of the teens took the medication from their family home.
