No questions of request for identification will be asked during the drop off).
The participants may dispose of the medication in its original container. When submitting the container, the individual is encourage to remove any indentifying information from the prescription label. This can be done by removing the label or utilizing permanent marker.
All solid dosage pharmaceutical products and liquids in consumer containers will be accepted. Liquid products, such as cough syrup should remain sealed in their original container. The depositor should ensure that the cap is tightly sealed to prevent leakage.
