Howard County General Hospital will accept and dispose of unused, expired and unwanted medicines, no questions asked. The hospital’s pharmacy staff, wearing masks and protective equipment, will hold a drive-through to collect tablets, capsules, liquids, creams, e-cigarettes, vape pens and needles for safe, secure, environmentally friendly disposal.
The event is part of National Prescription Drug Take-back Day. Howard County General Hospital will join organizations throughout the U.S. to prevent the misuse of prescription medications, many of which continue to supply the nation’s opioid epidemic. Disposing of unused, expired and unwanted drugs means they’ll no longer pose a danger to anyone in the home or on the street.
Saturday, Oct. 29, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
