What We Do
Project Med-Drop is a community-wide medicine disposal safety initiative led by various agencies to educate the community on safely disposing of expired or unwanted medication, providing convenient locations throughout the community to dispose of medication, and participating in the semiannual National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.
Who We Serve
All Onslow County residents.
How We Impact
Project Med-Drop provides education to members of the community to raise awareness on the risks associated with keeping unwanted medications, including accidental poisoning and prescription drug addiction. The initiative also emphasizes the impact of improperly disposing medications, such as by pouring medications down the toilet or the sink, and how it harms people, animals, and the environment. The promotion of Medication Disposal locations helps to ensure that medications in the community get disposed of safelyand will not be used by others.
