The Lima City Police Department and the Allen County Sheriff's Office, in collaboration with Health Partners of Western Ohio, Rays Supermarkets, Rader Environmental, Allen County Children Services and The University of Findlay College of Pharmacy, are planning a community wide Prescription Drug Disposal Program to be held Saturday April 14, 2012. The purpose of this program is to provide the public with a safe and effective method to dispose of medications. There is no charge to participate in the event.
Unwanted, unused and/or outdated prescriptions and over-the-counter medications will be accepted from 9 am to 12 noon at the Allen County Children Services Building, 123 W. Spring Street in Lima. Two remote drop-off sites will be set-up in the parking lots at Rays Supermarkets located at 890 South Cable Rd. and 2100 Harding Highway from 9 am to 10:30 am.
Medication should be kept in its original container or prescription bottle. The patient's name should be blackened out. No medication will be accepted outside of the times or sites listed above.
Licensed pharmacists from Health Partners of Western Ohio, Rays Pharmacy and Wellness Centers, and various local hospitals and other community pharmacies will be participating in the event along with pharmacy professors and students from the University of Findlay. Medications collected will be inventoried and properly destroyed by law enforcement personnel in accordance with DEA regulations.
