Pima County, Ariz.(May 2, 2012) – Unused prescription drugs will be collected by Pima County Sheriff’s deputies on Saturday, May 5, at Eastside City Hall, 7575 E. Speedway Blvd. The event is part of the Tucson/Pima County Hazardous Waste Program.
To get to the collection site, turn north onto Prudence Road and follow the signs.
Any unused prescription and over-the-counter medication will be collected, no questions asked, and disposed of safely. Medications should not be flushed down a toilet or tossed in the trash, where it could harm animals. It’s unsafe to leave unused prescription medication around the house.
