SOUTHPORT, NC (WWAY) -- Have any old prescription drugs at home? Don't just flush them. Throwing medications down the drain or the toilet can pollute the water supply. And with prescriptions now the drug of choice for many teens, leaving old meds at home can be a bad idea.
So August 24 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. you can drop off out-of-date or unwanted medications at Dosher Memorial Hospital in Southport. The hospital will then dispose of them properly.
Pet medications and needles will also be accepted.
