Safely dispose of your old prescription medication

National Drug Take Back Day

Here’s your chance to safely get rid of your unwanted prescription medications.

Saturday April 29 is the Annual Drug Enforcement Administration’s National Drug Take Back Day.

Law enforcement agencies will be set up around the Treasure Coast on Saturday from 10am until 2pm to take your prescription drugs.

Stuart Police will be at the CVS pharmacy on the corner of US1 and Monterey Road.

The St Lucie County Sheriff’s Office will be set up at their main office on Midway Road in Fort Pierce.

The Martin County Sheriff’s Office will be at the Walgreens on the corner of Jensen Beach Blvd and Savannah Road, the Walgreens on US1 and Cove Road the Sewalls Point Police Department offices and the Jupiter Island Police Department offices.

Here is an old article I wrote called “Don’t let your aspirin grow old.” This is a great time to clean out that Medicine cabinet and safely dispose of those old medications. Please do not flush them down the toilet!

Several years after the manufacture of aspirin, it is expected to slowly deteriorate and lose ifs efficiency. To slow down the deterioration process, follow the proper storage procedures. And if you have aspirin tablets that smell strongly of vinegar, discard them.”

So if you open the bottle and it smells like vinegar get rid of it. It’s not good anymore.
And don’t forget to check expiration dates!
