Happening at Harry Grove Stadium.
If you have some unused or expired prescription medications bag them up, because on October 26, 2013, you will be able to dispose of them properly at an event being sponsored by Whitesell's Pharmacy, The Frederick Police Department, and the Drug Enforcement Administration.
It's taking place at Harry Grove Stadium from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.
Flusing or throwing away medications puts our waterways and aquatic life at risk, and proper disposal prevents theft and misuse, officials said in a press release.
Receptacles will be provided for disposal. No personal information will be collected and citizens are encouraged to remove all personal information from bottles and containers.
Prescription and over the counter medications, pet medications, and medical samples will be accepted. Sharps containers will be available for hypodermic needles. Thermometers, IV bags, blood or infectious waste, oxygen tanks, and commercial waste will not be accepted.
