Secure drug disposal now offered at Akron Children’s in Boardman

05-02-2019 (Mahoning Valley, Ohio )

Akron Children’s Hospital is now collecting unused prescription medications in a secure dropbox at the Beeghly Campus in Boardman.

The hospital recently installed the collection box that is part of the LifeInCheck Consumer Drug Take-Back program. It’s located at 6505 Market St. in the lobby of Building A.

While many communities participate in annual drug collection events, having the receptacle available permanently will allow Akron Children’s to provide the public with an easily accessible site to dispose of unwanted prescription and over-the-counter medications.

“This will give the community a safe place to drop off unused medications,” said Sarrah Hein, pharmacy manager at Akron Children’s Beeghly Campus. “We hope this will lead to fewer prescriptions in patients’ homes that could be potentially abused or accidently ingested.”

Accepted in the dropbox are unused or expired prescription and over-the-counter medications and pet medications. Not accepted are illegal drugs, inhalers, needles, liquids and lotions.

For more information, call 330-746-8700.
