TUCSON - Do you know what to do with your old medications? More than half of us throw them in the trash, while others just flush them down the toilet, where they contaminate the water.
But there is a safer way to dispose of your medications. On Saturday, June 9th, the Pima County Sheriff's Department will host a Dispose-A-Med event. The collection site will be at the Walgreens at 13542 E. Colossal Cave Road in Vail from 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m.
Prescription and over-the-counter tablets, capsules, liquids and creams will be collected. Metal or glass inhalation aerosol bottles, syringes and epi-pens will not be accepted. For safety and confidentially reasons, any items turned over for collection cannot be returned. We cannot accept drugs from commercial organizations.
The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
