Keys Drug in Auburndale is now accepting unused, unwanted, or expired prescription and over-the-counter medications as a free service to the community.
Keyes has established a locked, safe and secure MedCollect medication collection cabinet in order to reduce the supply of drugs that can potentially harm teens and adults. These medications are then destroyed in a fully compliant and environmentally responsible manner, thus posing no harm to the community.
“We are frequently asked by our customers where and how they can return medications that they no longer need and that can pose a threat to family members and pets,” said Ray Dinno, pharmacist and co-owner of Keyes Drug. “We are so glad to be able to now provide a free service.”
The collection site is open during regular business hours and does not require any purchase for use. No individual dropping off medication will be questioned.
