Medication Disposal Bags

The Library has partnered with ASAP - Alliance for Substance Abuse Prevention, to offer free medication disposal bags to residents. 

Deterra medication disposal bags are a safe way to dispose of unused or unwanted medications. They are simple to use--simply put your prescription medication in the bags and add water. They are then environmentally safe to dispose of in your trash. Anyone in need of a safe way to dispose of medications can stop by the Library to get a medication disposal bag. All bags are FREE of charge and have been donated to ASAP by Rali Ohio.

Powered by proprietary MAT12® Molecular Adsorption Technology, the patented Deterra System deactivates prescription drugs, rendering them inert, unavailable for misuse and safe for the environment.

Environmental agencies, public safety organizations, healthcare and other institutions across the country are using Deterra to safely deactivate the active chemicals in the drugs which allows responsible disposal with no concerns that the drugs will end up in the hands of children or drug addicts, or in our drinking water. Stop into the Library to get your bag today!
