Have you ever found yourself staring at a medication bottle that’s not quite empty (but that you’re never going to finish)? What to do with unused medication, you may wonder? If you’ve heard that flushing it down the sink or toilet or tossing it in the garbage is not the right choice, you’re quite right. Medicines are best disposed of properly. Fortunately, you have the chance to let someone else take care of it for you during this upcoming Medication Take Back event.
What Is This?
This is the Medication Take Back event, which is offered by the Shrewsbury Police Department. It provides you with a way to safely get rid of your medication that’s unused (and that you are ready to throw away).
