Medication Disposal Pouches
Free medication disposal pouches are available at Brunswick County Health Services. Pouches can be used to dispose of pills, liquids, and patches. Simply put unused medications inside, add water, wait 30 seconds, seal the bag and throw it away. Once adsorbed by the carbon inside the bag, the drugs are ineffective for abuse and safe for disposal in landfills. The pouch itself is environmentally friendly.
