If you have unused medications laying around the house, you can safely dispose of them at the MedDropSA event sponsored by SAWS, SAPD, and the City of San Antonio. On January 26 from 8am-1pm you can bring prescriptions, unwanted and unused medications, and other household hazardous waste to the Bulky Waste Collection Center at 2755 Rigsby Avenue. These items will be accepted free of charge and disposed of in a safe manner. Proper disposal of medications helps keep drugs that can be abused off the streets along with keeping them out of the reach of children and out of our water system (flushing medications down the drain is not a safe disposal method!). For more information, visit the MedDropSA.com website (you can also see other dates and sites for safe disposal of unwanted and unused medications).
