On Oct. 12, the Village of Clemmons Stormwater Department, in collaboration with the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, will provide an opportunity to dispose of unused or expired medicine. Unused prescription medications in homes can create a safety concern due to being accidentally ingested, stolen, misused or abused.

Medicines should never be flushed or poured down the drain. This action will lead to polluted waterways impacting aquatic species, and contaminating our food and water supplies.

The Medicine Drop will be held on Oct. 12, from 9:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. at Clemmons Public Works, 3800 Dillon Industrial Drive.

Only pills can be accepted. Liquids, needles, and inhalants will not be accepted. This is for households only.

For more information, please call 336-766-9170.
