Dispose of Unused Medications and Sharps on April 25

To help residents dispose of medications in an environmentally safe way, Fauquier Health will hold an unused medication and sharps (needles and other sharp instruments) collection day from 9 a.m. to 12 noon on Saturday, April 25. The collection will be held at the Medical Office Building on Hospital Hill, at 253 Veterans Drive in Warrenton.

Unused medicine should be in its original packaging, if possible, and personal information should be
blacked out with a marker.

For the safety of Pharmacy workers, sharps must be in rigid plastic or metal containers (no soft-sided plastic that sharps can penetrate). Medication and sharps from businesses or doctors’ offices cannot be accepted.

The event is sponsored by Fauquier Health and the Warrenton Police Department. Call 540-316-3588 for more information.
