The University of Michigan College of Pharmacy, the Yellow Jug Old Drugs® program, and Village Apothecary Pharmacy will host a drug disposal event on Thursday, March 20, 2014 for faculty, staff and students to safely and properly dispose of unused and unwanted medications.
Medicines are the number one cause of poisoning in children. Improper drug disposal can harm the environment and create the opportunity for illegal use. Medicines have been found in water supplies, and discarded medications can be retrieved from the trash by those who would abuse or sell them.
Bring unused, unneeded, or expired medications to the March 20 event for environmentally responsible and secure disposal.
