In celebrating Alamance Creek Week as well as National Poison Prevention Week, join the Mebane Police Department at the Cone Health MedCenter for a Medicine Drop! Also known as a “Take Back” event, you can help your community and local waterways by bringing any unused or expired prescription and over-the-counter medications. Our rivers and streams are very vulnerable to the effects of drug contamination, and medications that are disposed of in the trash, flushed down the toilet, or down the sink, can lead to water contamination.
This event is free and provides a convenient location for proper medication disposal. However, keep in mind that Operation Medicine Drop cannot accept biohazard materials.
