Medication Disposal

At Pucci’s we work hard to ensure that we respect the environment and protect it as much as possible from toxic waste. With those principles in mind we offer a safe and ecologically friendly way for you to dispose of expired and or unwanted medications.

Step 1:

  • Remove pills and solid medications from their containers into a zip sealed bag

  • Keep liquid and cream based medications tightly sealed in their original container

 

Step 2:

  • Remove labels that include any personally identifiable information.

Step 3:

  • Bring the bags to our pharmacy and inform a staff member that you have medications you would like to dispose.

  • Prescription medications

  • Over-the-counter medications

  • Medicated ointments and lotions (leave tightly sealed in original containers)
