Operation Medicine Drop Prescription Drug Take Back Event Thursday in Pineville
Insurance Commissioner and Safe Kids N.C. Chair Mike Causey invites the public to drop off their unused medication at our Operation Medicine Drop prescription drug take back event in Pineville on Thursday, October 22, so it can be properly disposed of and kept out of the wrong hands.
With a lot of children spending more time at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, now is a very important time to remove unwanted drugs from the home.
Prescription drug overdoses are the leading cause of injury death – for the first time, it surpasses motor vehicle deaths. Operation Medicine Drop aims to keep unused drugs out of the wrong hands and out of our water and environment.
Operation Medicine Drop (OMD) is a FREE drug take-back program that gives people a safe and secure way to dispose of unwanted over-the counter and prescription medications.
