Drug drop off planned

A safe disposal event for unused or expired medications is being planned for Saturday at Hy-Vee.

The event, hosted by Hy-Vee pharmacy, Hamilton County law enforcement and Community and Family Resources will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The free, anonymous service is part of the National Take Back Program with the Drug Enforcement Agency. Prescription medications, over-the-counter pills, ointments, powders, inhalers, creams and lotions will be collected. Liquid medications of 4 ounces or less will be accepted if the container is wrapped in paper towel and sealed in a zip lock plastic bag.
