Getting rid of old medications


The town is holding a “Medication Take-back Day” on April 28 from 10 a.m. to noon at Town Hall. Prescription and nonprescription medicines will be accepted, but must be in their original containers. Names and personal information may be blacked out, but the name and dose of the medication should be left. You can also get rid of syringes and sharps, as long as they are in puncture-proof containers. Mercury thermometers will not be accepted. The idea is “to clean out unused and expired medications to keep them out of the hands of kids,” said Chris Delano, coordinator of Avon Coalition for Every Student. - Johanna Seltz
