Marana Police Dept. Dispose-A-Med event

Posted: Updated:

It’s time to clean out those medicine cabinets.

On Saturday, August 12, the Marana Police Department and several other community partners are putting on the “Dispose-A-Med” event. People can drop off items, such as prescription medications, over the counter meds, liquids, creams, vitamins and even needles.

This event runs from 10 a.m. till noon at Target at 3901 W. Ina Rd.

Since the program’s inception in 2010, they have collected over 4,100 pounds of medication. Since the start of 2017, they have already properly disposed of 642 pounds of medication.

For safety and confidentiality reasons, any items turned over for collection cannot be returned. They cannot accept drugs from commercial organizations. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
