Dispose of meds at Town Hall

BLYTHEWOOD – As a pharmacist by profession, Mayor J. Michael Ross is concerned about proper disposal of all drugs, even those that were prescribed but never finished for one reason or another and are sitting in a cabinet unprotected.

To help break the chain of illicit access and to help curb the opioid epidemic that is both national and Blythewood local, the mayor has contracted with DisposeRx to provide homes in the Blythewood area with a process where families can effortlessly be part of the ‘access’ solution.

DisposeRx has developed a prescription drug disposal solution that both physically and chemically binds medications into a permanent and environmentally safe gel. The packets are formulated to be used with tablets, powders, capsules, patches and liquid medications and are available FREE at Town Hall. Stop by and pick up a packet today or call Julie Emory at 803-754-0501 if you have questions.
