Once again, Vincent’s Drug Store will be participating in the DEA’s Annual Campaign to properly dispose of unneeded medications. Bring your unused or expired medications (no liquids) to the store for proper disposal, tomorrow, Saturday, October 24, 2020, from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm.
If you are not currently in Seabrook, click here to see the location near you that is participating in DEA’s TakeBack Day.
This is the time to check your medicine cabinet for unused or expired prescriptions. Not only are they taking up space, but they can be harmful if someone else, other than whom they were prescribed for, accidentally takes them.
The problem is how to dispose of them. Throwing them in the trash is obviously not the solution. Once they are in the landfill, they can be picked up by people or animals. Flushing them down the drain can pollute the water system.
The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is a safe way to dispose of these prescription drugs. The April 2019 Take-Back Day brought in 937,443 pounds (468.72 tons) of unused or expired prescription medication.
National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is Tomorrow, Saturday,
October 24, 2020
Drop off your unused or expired medications (no liquids) at Vincent’s Drug Store in Freshfields Village
between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.
Call Vincent’s if you have questions 843-243-0007
