Free medication disposal event

A free medication disposal event will take place Saturday, March 23 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Medical Mall next to New Hanover Regional Medical Center. The Medical Mall is located at 2243 South 17th Street. A convenient drive-thru service will also be available.

All medicines - prescription, over-the-counter, vitamins and herbal - will be accepted for disposal. Please keep the medication in its original container to assist with identification.

Keeping medications in the home can be a hazard to people, animals and the environment. Flushing medications or washing them down the sink puts the medicine directly into the water system and throwing medications in the trash allows them to break down and seep into the groundwater. Unnecessary, unwanted or expired medications should be disposed of properly.

For more information, call 910-815-5152.
