April 13, 2018 - Memorial Health System Partners Up for Medication Take Back Day 2018
Medication Take Back Day will be held on Saturday, April 28 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. This event will help people properly dispose of unwanted, unused or expired medications in a safe manner. Medication Take Back Day is held so people can avoid drugs being stolen and illegally sold, poisoning of children and pets if they find and swallow drugs, and to help reduce contamination of soil and drinking water.
The event is a partnership of Memorial Health System, The Right Path for Washington County, the Washington County Sheriff’s Department, Area Agency on Aging, and RSVP. Volunteers will be located at the collection sites to assist with and collect the medications. The collection sites are:
