Got some old medicines in the back of your cupboard?
Then consider dropping them off at Fremont Area Medical Center.
On April 28, the hospital, in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration, is accepting any unused, unwanted or expired prescription drugs for safe disposal — at no cost with no questions asked.
Medications can be dropped off between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at a collection site inside FAMC’s front lobby.
The medications will be accepted and personal information will be blacked out on the containers. A law enforcement officer will take the medications to the DEA, which will incinerate them, said Nick Hummel, FAMC director of pharmacy services.
The drop-off offers a safe way for area residents to dispose of medications they no longer need, including prescription drugs that contain controlled substances which are potentially dangerous.
