Get Rid of Old Prescriptions Safely – March 20th

On Wednesday, March 20, 2013, the Chapel Hill Police Department will partner with UNC Department of Public Safety and University Mall for a Prescription Drug Take Back Event.

Drug disposalThis free event will be held in the parking lot of University Mall, 201 South Estes Drive, near Wells Fargo Bank from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event will allow members of the public to safely dispose of outdated or unused prescriptions and over-the-counter medication. The medicine will be deposited in secured containers and will be disposed of properly and safely. This process helps keep medicines out of the hands of children and out of our water supply.
