Local safety advocates are hosting opportunities to dispose of unused prescription medications this week, including one today.
The medicine drop events are part of a statewide effort to provide a safe way to discard prescriptions and over-the-counter products that may be expired or unneeded, officials said.
Today’s drop will be at the East Carolina Heart Institute at Vidant Medical Center from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Others will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday at Vidant Wellness Center, 2610 Stantonsburg Road, and Saturday at Target, 3040 S. Evans St.
