Medicine will be accepted from residential households only. Prescription and over-the-counter medications, vitamins, supplements, and pet medications will be accepted. Pills should be removed from bottles and placed in zip plastic bags. Liquid medications, ointments and creams should be placed in separate bags to prevent spills. Labels from pill bottles should be removed or have any personal information blacked out and can then be recycled through local recycling programs.
The following items will not be accepted: hypodermic needles (sharps), thermometers, hydrogen peroxide, aerosol cans, and medicine from businesses or clinics.
