National Prescription Drug Drop Off Day -  Saturday,  May 21, 2016

The Winnipeg Police Service in cooperation with Pharmacists Manitoba want to remind residents to check their homes for unwanted or expired medications and return them to their local pharmacies as part of National Prescription Drug Drop-Off Day which is set for Saturday, May 21, 2016.

This event is sponsored by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police, in conjunction with Health Canada, Public Safety Canada, Partnership for a Drug Free Canada, the Canadian Pharmacists Association, Health Products Stewardship Association and the Canadian Medical Association in leading and supporting Canada's fourth annual Prescription Drug Drop-off Day.

“When it comes to the safety of our community, small measures can make a huge impact,” says Chief Devon Clunis of the Winnipeg Police Service. 

“We’re asking all Winnipeggers to take a few moments to go through their medicine cabinets, identify medication that is no longer needed and then drop it off at your local pharmacy for proper disposal.

“All too often we do not give it a second thought, but those medications in the wrong hands can have catastrophic consequences for vulnerable or young people wishing to experiment. Help us remove this risk.”

Many citizens have unused and expired prescription medications in their home as their safe disposal can be difficult.  Flushing them down the drain or tossing them in the garbage can be an environmental hazard.

Winnipeg Police encourage residents to drop off all their unused medications at one of the more than 300 pharmaceutical outlets around the city and the province.

National Prescription Drug Drop-Off Day is a great way to highlight the Manitoba Medication Return Program and educate the public on how to dispose of unused and expired medication safely. This year the Health Products Stewardship Association will once again provide supplies to pharmacies for the collection of the drugs and dispose of the products in collected through the Manitoba Medications Return Program.

The Manitoba Medication Return Program is available at pharmacies all year round

Simply bring unused or expired medications to your local pharmacy for safe disposal.
