Safely Dispose of Medications
Nice tip from a writer to the Sacramento Bee regarding disposal of unused medications. She is right that it would be nice to have more than one or two official take back days to get rid of unused prescription drugs.
I looked up the Dispose My Meds program she mentioned. Here's their web site. They have a Locator function so you can find participating businesses in your area. They list five places within 25 miles of Eureka:
- United Indian Health Services Pharmacy in Arcata
- The two Cloney's Pharmacy's In Eureka- one on Harrison and one on 5th Street
- Greens Fortuna Pharmacy and
- Palco Pharmacy in Scotia
Update 4/24/13: The wife just called the Cloney's pharmacy on Harris Street in Eureka and asked if they could dispose of some prescriptions she wasn't taking anymore. They said they don't do that. I'm guessing someone put their name on the list for "advertisement" purposes, or maybe new management took over and stopped doing it?
