Operation Medicine Drop 2015

OMD2015smOperation Medicine Drop is a great program that helps people dispose of unneeded and out-of-date medications that might otherwise pollute our drinking water, or harm someone; especially children. more information

If you have medications you need to dispose of, please click on the flyer to locate the site that is most convenient to you and drop them off on Saturday the 26th. It’s a no-questions-asked, quick-and-easy drop off. The people collecting the drugs will dispose of the drugs and make sure any identifying information on the containers is destroyed. Please don’t flush your medications down the toilet, and don’t leave them where they might fall into the wrong hands.

If you want to volunteer to help with the collection and cataloging of the drugs, please contact Daisy Haywood at 910-546-2957, or e-mail her at dhaywood@ci.jacksonville.nc.us. There is a law enforcement officer or two at each site. They have the forms and will instruct you on what needs to be done. If you’ve got a few hours to spare, it’s a great way to help out. We never have too many volunteers.
