Improper disposal of unused and expired medication is a problem in many communities. In addition to permanent drop-off locations, National Prescription Drug Take-Back Days are held twice a year. Tomorrow's 10 a.m.-2 p.m. event will be held at several sites in Tucson and Pima County, where they will be accepting medications in their original containers. This service is free and anonymous.
Dispose-A-Med partners include the City of Tucson, Pima County Health Department, Pima Association of Governments, Arizona Poison and Drug Information Center, and many others. For more information, call (520) 724-7911 or visit the National Take Back Initiative Collection site search.
