Operation-Medicine Cabinet, Nov. 13th |
Title (Max 100 Characters)
The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office is once again hosting “Operation-Medicine Cabinet” on Saturday November 13th. This is a Pharmaceutical Take Back program, a prescription for safe kids and a clean environment.
When old medications are kept in your house it increases the chance for illegal use and theft. But the question remains on how to get rid of expired or old medication? You don’t want to flush them, because that would send them into our water system which could contaminate our water supply as well as our drinking water.
Disposing of your unused or expired prescriptions and medications properly is extremely important. So bring your unwanted or unneeded medications to this free collection event and they will be disposed of free of charge. Operation Medicine Cabinet will take place on Saturday, 13 November, 2010 between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. in the parking lot of the Flagler Imaging Center, 101 Health Park Blvd.
Please bring the medications in their original container and that container will be returned. Items that will not be accepted are Sharps, Medical Wastes or thermometers.
For additional information please contact Deputy Diana Bryant, Crime Prevention at the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office at (904) 810-6694.
