Reminder – Prescription Take-Back Day This Saturday

Once again, Vincent’s Drug Store in Freshfields will be participating in the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) National Prescription Take-Back Day to properly dispose of unneeded medications. Bring your unused or expired medications (no liquids) to the store for proper disposal on Saturday, April 30, 2022, 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 Take Back 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 the person for whom they were prescribed, accidentally takes them.

It is very important to dispose of medications safely. 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 provides a safe way to dispose of prescription drugs. Drop off your unused or expired medications (no liquids) at Vincent’s Drug Store in Freshfields Village on Saturday, April 30, between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.

If you have any questions, call Vincent’s at 843-243-0007.
