The "Consumer Drug Take-Back" (CDTB) program is a great way to assist in combating drug misuse, abuse, and diversion while protecting our rivers and streams. The program will provide a convenient way to dispose of unused or expired medications (prescription and over the counter). The receptacle is not designed or set up to accept illegal drugs, needles, thermometers, inhalers, liquids/lotions, aerosol cans, or hydrogen peroxide.
What happens to unused drugs:
The secured CDTB green receptacle will be located at the pharmacy counter. Individuals will have free access to dispose of unused or expired prescription and over the counter medications when the pharmacy is open. The CDTB receptacle is self-service and requires no assistance from pharmacy staff members.
The CDTB receptacle will be available for use starting September 4th, 2018.
