Residents of Connecticut are invited to participate in National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, Oct. 29, from 10am-2pm. The event is a chance to dispose of unused or unwanted medication safely and anonymously.
Items accepted are over-the-counter medications, prescription medications, medication samples, medications for household pets, medicated lotions or ointments. Items that will not be accepted are needles or other “sharps,” hazardous waste, thermometers, personal care products (shampoo, etc.)
No questions asked, just drop the unwanted medications in and they will be safely and securely destroyed.
