The time for spring cleaning is upon us, and one of the most important places in your home to clean is your medicine cabinet. Saturday, April 28 is National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day – a good reminder of how important it is to safely dispose of those unused pills.
Having unused or expired meds around the house can prove tempting to curious children or teens looking to get high. But it’s also important to dispose of those meds safely; flushing or dumping them in the trash can harm the environment. Lopez residents have a safe, convenient option – bring your unwanted meds (prescription or over-the-counter) to the take-back box located behind the fire station. It’s available 24/7. Original containers need not be included, so you can easily protect your private health information.
