On Wednesday, the community is invited to dispose of their unwanted or expired prescription medication at the Annual Senior Information Day at the Richmond Civic Center.

From 9 a.m. to noon, the Richmond Police Department will accept medications at the Annual Senior Information Day event at 403 Civic Center Plaza.

Discarding the medication in this way keeps the drugs away from children, abusers and out of the water supply, officials said.

Some rules:

  • Transport your drugs to the dump site in their original containers. It is important for the person who is prescribed the medication to transport it themselves or with a family member. NO prescription liquids or vitamins
  • Empty your drugs into a plastic baggie at the disposal site
  • Throw it in the bin!
