Event Details

Event: Operation Medicine Cabinet
Date: Wednesday April 10th
Time: 9:00AM - 1:00PM
Location: Dosher Hospital Front Entrance
Description: The 26th semi-annual “Operation Medicine Cabinet” drug take back event at Dosher Memorial Hospital is scheduled for Wednesday April 10th, between the hours of 9:00 am and 1:00 pm. Local residents are invited to drop off unwanted and expired prescription medications at the hospital front entrance, where law enforcement then takes what is collected for safe incineration. One of the conveniences of this event is that it is designed so that you can “drive through and drop off,” without having to leave your car.

Sharps containers will not be accepted at this event, however, Dosher staff members will have information on hand on how to safely dispose sharps at home.

Please note: Dosher is unable to collect any medications outside of the published hours of this event. Participants who arrive early will be asked to hold onto their medications until 9:00 am. Community members who arrive after 1:00 pm will be directed to other local safe medication disposal locations. These measures are for the safety of our staff and community, and Dosher appreciates everyone’s understanding.
