Oro Valley Dispose-A-Med

Dispose-A-Med is getting some National attention as a way to safely dispose of unused and expired prescription drugs.  Once a month you can bring those old prescriptions to the Oro Valley Target store and they will dispose of the drugs in a manner that keeps them out of our water supply.

Keeping those old drugs in your medicine cabinet is a BAD IDEA!  But that is exactly what many of us do.

Well, we who live in Oro Valley don’t need to do this any longer.  Thanks to the Oro Valley Police Dept. and the OV Optimist Club for spearheading this program in Oro Valley.

The Next drop off date is July 30, 2011.  Between 8 am. and Noon.  You can turn in those old drugs for safe disposal.  No longer do you need to worry about children or grandchildren accidentally ingesting a drug they were never intended to take.

There are several old PDF documents on the web with dates for 2010 pickup and the first half of 2011 dates.  However, I did find a current document with the Second half of 2011 Dispose-A-Med Schedule.
