The Western Lake Superior Sanitary District (WLSSD) is giving area residents an opportunity to clean out their medicine cabinets and properly get rid of their unwanted, expired prescriptions.  Their collection event is happening Friday, April 11 from 9AM to 5PM.  This one day event is your chance to dispose of these medications the proper way.

Residential households are invited to drop off these items at the Household Hazardous Waste Facility:  2626 Courtland Street in Duluth.

Businesses that need the same service are asked to contact the WLSSD Clean Shop at 726-1602.

Bringing prescriptions to events like this are the proper way to dispose of unwanted medications.  Throwing them in the trash or flushing them down the toilet drain only pollutes and taints our environment - adding unwanted chemicals to our ecosystem.
