Niagara residents will have an opportunity to clean out the medicine cabinet and safely dispose of those old prescription medications.
Niagara Regional Police Service, Niagara Region Public Health, Niagara Emergency Medical Services, Ontario Association of Police Chiefs, Ontario Pharmacists’ Association and Ontario Provincial Police have partnered to host the 2nd Annual prescription drug drop-off day on Saturday, May 11, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Niagara residents are encouraged to dispose of outdated, unused, and unwanted prescription medication in a secure, environmentally friendly manner.
By doing so, it reduces the access and availability of these medications for misuse and diverts a large amount of these medications from the landfill sites and our waterways, police say.
The locations below are where residents can drop off these unused or old medications anonymously without having to get out of their car:
Lester B. Pearson Park
