Earth Day was first celebrated in 1970 and Apr. 22 was officially earmarked as a day to make positive changes in our communities that help keep our planet healthy and clean. For the third consecutive year, Greenbrier Medical Arts Pharmacy and the Lewisburg Police Department have teamed up on Earth Day to offer a free Medication Disposal Event. Prescription medications, including several pounds of narcotics, and over-the-counter medications were accepted for environmentally safe destruction.
“We would like to extend a special thanks to the Lewisburg Police Department for their support of this event,” said Aaron Gwinn, R.Ph., pharmacy manager.
Greenbrier Medical Arts Pharmacy offers an eco-friendly drug return program year ‘round, but cannot regularly accept narcotics. Please help protect our rivers and streams. Don’t flush medications down the toilet or pour them down the drain. Bring unwanted or expired medications to Greenbrier Medical Arts Pharmacy for disposal. For more information about what can be accepted, visit www.myvalleyrx.com or call 304-647-1377.
