In an effort to kickoff National Poison Prevention Week (March 14-20), Clarian Health, the Indiana Poison Center, Marsh Pharmacies, Statewide Medical Services and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management are partnering to provide the two-day “Clean Out Your Medicine Cabinet” event on Saturday, March 13 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, March 14 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The two-day event will provide central Indiana residents with a safe and environmentally-friendly way to get rid of expired and leftover prescriptions and over-the-counter medicines.

What should I bring?

During this two-day event, individuals will be able to safely dispose of medications that meet the following criteria:

· Pills, capsules and liquids (no needles, inhalers, sharps, or aerosols)

· Medicine must be in original container with original label intact

· Medicines that have the words “toxic,” “corrosive,” “reactive” or “ignitable” on them will not be accepted

· Only one type of medication can be in a single container – no mixtures

· No pill organizers will be accepted

· No controlled or illegal substances (check with your regular pharmacist if you’re not sure whether a medicine is controlled)

Where should I drop off my medications?

Expired and unwanted medications can be dropped off at any of Indiana’s 41 Marsh pharmacies. For the pharmacy location nearest you, visit www.marsh.net.
