NEW HANOVER CTY -  In an effort to reduce the risk of misuse or accidental exposure to medications, including opioids and other prescriptions, New Hanover Regional Medical Center is scheduled to have a free medication disposal event.
People who misuse medication often get their first dose by using medications prescribed to other people, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. To help stop the cycle in our own community, NHRMC has partnered with area organizations to collect unneeded and expired medications to be disposed of in a safe, convenient and environmentally sound manner.
All medications brought to the event should be in their original containers. Law enforcement officers will be on hand to accept controlled substances.
Medications can be prescription, over-the-counter, vitamins or herbal. Syringes and other sharps will also be accepted.
