Medication Take Back Boxes

You may not even realize that you have unneeded, expired or recalled products in your medicine cabinet. Leaving expired and unused drugs "just in case" can put anyone in your home, including children and pets, at risk for accidental ingestion, misuse or overdose. So it's time to take action. Protect your family and clean it out!
