Spring DEA Prescription Drug Take Back Day

image_pdfimage_print

This Spring’s DEA Prescription Drug Take Back Day that was scheduled for April 25th has been postponed. Durham Middlefield Local Wellness Coalition and Durham Middlefield Youth & Family Services wants to encourage the residents of Durham and Middlefield to take this time to dispose of medications safely and properly at home. Unused and expired medications should be mixed with an unpalatable substance such as dirt, cat litter or used coffee grounds. Place the mixture into a container such as a sealed plastic bag and then throw the container away in your household trash can. Please remember to scratch out all personal information on the prescription label of your empty pill bottle or empty medication packaging to make it unreadable, then dispose of the container. By taking these medication disposal steps you are helping unused and expired medication from not getting to the hands of people they were not prescribed to. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to Dena Miccinello, Prevention Coordinator for DMLWC at dmiccinello@dmyfs.org. Follow us on social media @DMLWC for more tips and updates!
