This event aims to assist the community in safely and anonymously disposing of prescription drugs that are no longer needed or have expired. Please note that collection sites will not accept syringes, sharps, or illicit drugs. If you are bringing liquid medicine, such as cough syrup, it should be in its original container with the cap tightly sealed to prevent any potential leaks.
