HI-DESERT MEDICAL CENTER DRUG TAKE-BACK DAY SATURDAY

HI-DESERT MEDICAL CENTER DRUG TAKE-BACK DAY SATURDAY

All those old prescription drugs can be a danger to your family and our water supply. The Hi-Desert Medical Center will take those off your hands. Managing editor Tami Roleff has details on drug take-back day this Saturday…
Every year, thousands of pounds of prescription drugs end up in landfills. These medications pose a danger to the environment. The best way to dispose of old, unused, and unwanted prescription medicine is to turn them in at drug take-back programs. Used “sharps,” or syringe needles, are also a health threat if not disposed of properly. The Hi-Desert Medical Center is hosting a free drop-off event for unwanted prescription drugs and used sharps/needles. Bring your unwanted drugs and used needles to the Helen Gray Education Center on the hospital campus from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, August 16. Sharps must be brought to the event in a container such as a coffee can; do not bring uncontained sharps to the event.
