This Saturday (April 26th) the Nebraska MEDS project will take back unused medications at 5 pharmacies near Taylor Park. Taking back leftover medications for proper disposal is extremely important because it reduces the risk of accidental poisonings and illegal drug use, all the while protecting aquatic environments as well as our own drinking water.

This opportunity to safely dispose of leftover medications (including controlled substances such as pain killers, etc.) only occurs once or twice a year because of the special logistics required, so please take advantage!

WHEN:

  • Saturday, April 26th
  • 10:00AM – 2:00PM

WHERE:

  • Shopko Pharmacy at 66th/O
  • Four Star Drug on S. Cotner
  • Four Star Drug on N. 66th
