Home Instead Senior Care and Deaconess Home Services is spearheading a new community event aimed at educating and encouraging the proper disposal of unwanted or expired medications. All medications will be supervised by law enforcement and then taken to a hazardous waste collection site where they will be incinerated. We will have donuts and other refreshments for people dropping off medications. If you choose, you can drop off medications without getting out of your car! Our goal is to collect 80lbs of medications, so do some spring cleaning in your medicine cabinet!
