Time to Clean Out the Medicine Cabinets

The City of Tyler will participate in a nationwide effort Saturday and give people a chance to get rid of un-unused and expired medications.

Tyler Police Department along with (DEA) Drug Enforcement Agency is hosting a Medication Cleanout Event.  This event will be held on Saturday, September 29, 2012 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at Fresh, located at 6991 Old Jacksonville Hwy.

Just drive-up and drop off your unused and expired medications for safe disposal without getting out of your vehicle.

These drive-through events are free and allow you to turn in unused and expired medications for safe disposal. It is important to clean out your medicine cabinet, especially if you have children. Young children may confuse it with something to eat or drink and keeping unneeded medications with teenagers can lead to potential drug abuse. Medications including prescriptions, over-the-counter drugs, veterinary medicine, vitamins, minerals and medication samples are all accepted.  Medical equipment such as oxygen tanks, sharps, inhalers, thermometers, nebulizers and IV bags cannot be accepted.

The Medication Cleanout is also sponsored by Wal-Mart Super Center on Troup Hwy. For more information, visit www.medicationcleanout.com.
