Reminder: Medicine Drop-Off Day

Do you have old prescription medications that you don't know how to dispose of properly? Mark your calendars for our Medicine Drop Off event on Saturday, April 28 between 8 a.m. and noon in the Education Center at Elk Regional Health Center.

Our pharmacists, working with the Elk County Recycling Center, will take your old medications and ensure that they are safely and properly disposed of ... free of charge!

We will accept and dispose of:

  • prescription medications, including controlled substances
  • over-the-counter medications
  • vitamins and nutritional supplements
  • veterinary medications; and
  • epi-pens and inhalers.

Please follow these guidelines when you bring your medication in:
  • all medicines should be in their original container; 
  • the name of the medication must be visible on the label; and 
  • you must use a permanent marker to black out your personal information, such as your name, address, or account number.
