Safely Dispose Of Unused Medications For Free | News | – NBC Right Now



The Benton Franklin Health District (BFHD), in partnership with Medication, Education, and Disposal (MED), is supplying the community with free packaging to help residents’ safely mail-back unused medications.

Unused medications may be mailed back to prevent water pollution and accidental ingestion. Free packaging to mail-back unused prescription medication may be picked up at the BFHD to privately dispose of medications at home.

Those with medications to dispose of may also visit a drop-off kiosk, found at most pharmacies, or at most law enforcement agencies.

“This program will provide a safe and free way to dispose of medications,” said Jim Coleman, Environmental Health Specialist with the Benton Franklin Health District.
