April 23, 2019 : Community Disposal Day and Drug Drop Off Saturday, April 27


Ohio University Lancaster is hosting a Community Disposal Day and Drug Drop Off event on campus Saturday, April 27.  The event starts at 10 a.m. and runs until 2 p.m.


Confidential shredding is available, the community is encouraged to bring confidential documents to be safely shredded (2 box limit per vehicle).


Community members can drop off unused or outdated prescription medication.  They can also recycle batteries and cell phones.


No liquids, ointments/salves, powders, patches, aerosols, needles, syringes, or medical waste of any type will be accepted.


In addition, the event organizers cannot accept paint, household chemicals, compact fluorescent light bulbs, televisions or medical equipment.


The prescription drop off is held inside the main entrance to Ohio University Lancaster so due to D.E.A. regulations, participants will be required to carry their pills inside and empty them into an approved container on their own.  Batteries and phones will be collected in the parking lot.


Last year, thousands of prescription pills were collected for disposal. The event is free and open to the public.


If you have any questions about the event, contact Maryann Lape, Ohio University Lancaster at 740-681-3339.
