Family Health is pleased to announce the installation of a MedSafe disposal system at its Meeker Road facility for unused/outdated medications. MedSafe prevents pharmaceuticals from circulating into community water supplies due to improper disposal. It can also reduce the chance of unintended and illegal use of drugs by providing a safe and convenient disposal option.

If you have unused medication to dispose of, come to Family Health Pharmacy where pharmacy personnel will then accompany you to the disposal unit where you will deposit the medications. The ultimate users or authorized persons only may place unused drugs including legally held controlled drugs and narcotics into the receptacle.

Drugs should be left in their original container when possible with personal information removed if desired. Liquid medication less than 4 ounces may be deposited, but please place them inside a plastic bag.

The following cannot be placed in the MedSafe receptacle:

  • Needles, syringes, lancets, injection pens, liquid chemotherapy drugs, chemo waste, or other medical waste
  • Batteries, aerosol spray cans/inhalers, trash or other hazardous materials
  • Illicit drugs (Schedule I controlled substances) such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine
