The pharmaceutical waste box is back!

15 Dec

got-drugs-2I don’t often have to go to Webster Town Hall for business, but I did frequent take advantage of the pharmaceutical waste drop box near the entrance to the police department. So I really missed it when the Town Hall was undergoing renovations.

The good news is, now that the Town Hall renovations are (mostly) done, the drop box is back, and open during regular business hours, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Items accepted at the drop box include any unused, unwanted or expired medication such as prescriptions, prescription patches, prescription medication, prescription ointments, over-the-counter medications, vitamins, samples and medications for pets. Items that are NOT accepted include hydrogen peroxide, inhalers, aerosol cans, ointments, lotions, or liquids, thermometers, needles (sharps) and medication from businesses or clinics.

If you do not feel comfortable with your personal information on the bottles, you can remove the pills and put them in a plastic bag for disposal.
