Operation-Medicine Cabinet, March 12th
Events, Health

The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office is hosting another “Operation-Medicine Cabinet” this month in the Northeastern and Central parts of the county. This is a Pharmaceutical Take Back program, a prescription for safe kids and a clean environment.

The operations will take place on Saturday, 12 March, from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., at the Gate Petroleum, 10970 U.S. 1 North (corner of U.S.1 and Valley Ridge Blvd.) as well in the parking lot at the Flagler Imaging Center, 101 Health Park Blvd.

When old medications are kept in your house it increases the chance for illegal use as well as theft. But the question remains on how to get rid of expired or old medication? You don’t want to flush them down the toilet, because that would send them into our water system which could contaminate our water supply as well as our drinking water. Disposing of your unused or expired prescriptions and medications properly is extremely important. So bring your unwanted or unneeded medications to this free collection event and they will be disposed of free of charge. Operation Medicine Cabinet will take place on Saturday, 12 March, from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. at the Gate Petroleum, corner of U.S. 1 and Valley Ridge Blvd, as well as at the parking lot of the Flagler Imaging Center, 101 Health Park Blvd.

Please bring the medications in their original container. Items that will NOT be accepted are Sharps, Medical Wastes, nuclear medications or thermometers. For additional information please contact Deputy Diana Bryant, Crime Prevention at
the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office at (904) 810-6694.
