Marsh accepting unwanted meds

Marsh Pharmacies, MainStreet Market Pharmacies, and sponsors including the Indiana Department of Environmental Management are planning a Marsh Fall 2013 “Clean Out Your Medicine Cabinet” event Oct. 25 through Oct. 28.

Hoosiers who have unwanted medicines may drop them off at any Marsh Pharmacy. Pharmacists at all Marsh Pharmacy locations will be collecting and qualifying over-the-counter and prescription medications for free disposal on the following dates and times:

• 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Oct. 25

• 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 26

• 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 27

• 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Oct. 28

To be accepted, all items must be fully identifiable and in their original containers. The name of the medication must be visible on the label; a black, permanent marker should be used to block out personal information, including name, address and Rx number; sharps should be sealed in a non-returnable, puncture-resistant rigid container (such as a laundry detergent bottle).

These are the types of medicines that will be accepted:

• Pills, capsules and liquids (no aerosols, inhalers, Nitroglycerin or alcohol-containing products).

• Medicine must be in original container with original label intact.

• No medicines that have the words ‘‘toxic,’’ ‘‘corrosive,” ‘‘reactive,’’ ‘‘ignitable,’’ ‘‘flammable’’ or ‘‘poison’’ will be accepted.

• No mixtures will be accepted; only one type of medication can be in a single container.

• No pill organizers will be accepted.

• No controlled or illegal substances (you may check with your regular pharmacist if you are not certain whether a medicine is a controlled substance).

• Only sharps in re-sealable, hard-plastic containers will be accepted.

• Only unwanted medicines from individuals will be accepted. Nothing will be accepted from health centers, clinics, doctors’ offices, or other businesses or organizations.

Marsh Pharmacies are located throughout the Central Indiana area and in Warsaw. Communities include Anderson, Bloomington, Brownsburg, Carmel, Columbus, Fishers, Greenwood, Indianapolis, Kokomo, Lafayette, Marion, Muncie, Noblesville, Pendleton, Plainfield, Tipton, Warsaw, West Lafayette, Westfield and Zionsville. IDEM, the Indiana Poison Center, Inmar, Rexam, IU Health, NuGenesis Environmental Services and Indiana Association for Home & Hospice Care are helping to sponsor the event.
