Trinity Pharmacy Helping to Protect our Community
Communities throughout the United States are pitching in to protect children from inadvertent drug ingestion or drug abuse and to keep citizens safe from contaminated drinking water resulting from flushing, trashing or tossing of expired or unused prescription drugs. Because of this, Trinity Pharmacy is proud to announce the addition of a medication drop box in the pharmacy waiting area. This receptacle is where patients, family members and/or caregivers can dispose of unwanted medications, even controlled substances.
The medication collection system provides a simple and effortless way for individuals to safely dispose of unused or expired medications.
If you are wondering what can be accepted:
Yes: Any expired, unused or unwanted controlled, non-controlled and over-the-counter medications, including pet medications. Liquid products such as cough syrup must be tightly capped.
No: Trash, regulated medical waste, sharps, syringes, thermometers, hazardous waste, aerosols, illicit drugs or commercial waste.
Trinity Pharmacy is conveniently located near the main entrance inside Trinity Regional Medical Center, and is open Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
