Have some old meds sitting around? I know I've got a few. Don't flush em, don't toss of them, get rid of them safely! Our Friends at the Walker Street Pharmacy Participates in National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.

On April 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. citizens around the country will have the opportunity to dispose of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Also, Americans’ usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards.

Walker Street Pharmacy & Gifts, 1181 Walker Avenue NW, Grand Rapids will participate by taking back some prescription drugs. Walker Street Pharmacy owner Edward Rutowski points out that certain drugs need to be taken to a Drug Enforcement Agency sponsored location.

So stop in and get rid of your old meds safely! It's good for everyone!
