Purdue Pharmacy providing local community with drug disposal program

The Purdue University Pharmacy has brought a new service to campus this month that will provide a safe way for the Purdue community to dispose of expired or unwanted medications that they may have around their home.   

MedSafe is an unused or expired medication disposal system that accepts controlled, non-controlled and over-the-counter medicines. This easy-to-operate collection receptacle provides the West Lafayette community with a safe and convenient disposal option, helping to prevent pharmaceuticals from circulating into water supplies due to improper disposal. The service also reduces the chance of unintended and illegal use of drugs.

The new MedSafe unit can be found in the Purdue University Pharmacy, which is in Room 118 of the Heine Pharmacy Building on campus. It is available for public use at 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. every weekday.

For questions regarding the new MedSafe service, contact Nicole Noel at nlnoel@purdue.edu.
