• Indiana residents can turn in unwanted medications

    March 14, 2012 No comments

    Indiana residents will have a chance to get rid of outdated or unwanted prescription drugs this weekend.

    The Indiana Department of Environmental Management says Marsh Pharmacies and MainStreet Market Pharmacies will be accepting medications, vitamins and nutritional supplements, veterinary medications and needles in resealable hard, plastic containers from Friday through Monday.

    Items they won’t be accepting are controlled substances, hazardous, poisonous or toxic substances, flammable liquids containing alcohol or mixed medications or medications in alternate containers. All items must be identifiable and in their original containers.

    IDEM says properly disposing of unwanted medicines protects the state’s lakes and streams and also protects pets and children, who can be poisoned as a result of accidental ingestion of pharmaceuticals thrown in the trash.
