Operation Medicine Drop Rx
Operation Medicine Drop Rx will be held at Publix Super Market located at 6828 Matthews Mint Hill Road on October 24 from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.
The purpose of Operation Medicine Drop Rx is to help stop prescription drugs from falling into the wrong hands, Attorney General Cooper and the SBI help sponsor prescription drug take-back events across the state. We partner with Safe Kids North Carolina, the Drug Enforcement Administration and local law enforcement to collect and safely destroy these drugs during Operation Medicine Drop.
Safely disposing of old medications through Operation Medicine Drop events instead of flushing them down the drain prevents chemicals from ending up in the water supply. North Carolinians have safely disposed of approximately 52.8 million total doses at Operation Medicine Drop events since 2009. Because narcotics and other dangerous drugs are often received at prescription drug take-back events, these events must be overseen by law enforcement officials.
