The Kure Beach Police Department will hold "Operation Medicine Drop" on Sunday, March 17th from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. If you have any prescription and/or over-the-counter medications, or chemical/herbal vitamins that you are no longer using, please drop them off at the KBPD.
On Saturday, March 23rd from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm, there will be another medication disposal event at the Medical Mall located at 2243 South 17th Street in Wilmington, near the New Hanover Regional Medical Center.
Medications should be dropped off in their original containers. All medications received at both locations will be incinerated following EPA regulations. Disposing of any medications through the water system or garbage is hazardous to our environment, and having unnecessary medications in the home can be a hazard to yourself and your loved ones, so please take advantage of these FREE events!
