Operation Medicine Drop offers chance to safely dispose of old prescriptions

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Check your medicine cabinet or that drawer in your bathroom, and you’ll probably find bottle of expired prescription medicine. If so, you have a chance to safely get rid of it this week.

It’s important not only to help decrease prescription medication abuse, but it’s also important for the environment. If you flush old medicine down the toilet it gets into our water system, affecting the growth and reproduction of marine life.

Getting rid of old prescription drugs safely is much easier than you might think. There are drop-off events around the state this week as part of Operation Medicine Drop. Click here to find a drop-off event near you.
