Got a cabinet full of unused or expired prescriptions and over-the-counter medicines? Throw them out properly at Dispose-A-Med, a community event 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Target store, 1135 S. Gilbert Road in Mesa. The program is designed to keep prescriptions and other meds from ending up in sewers or landfills, or from being misused by teens in “pharming parties” where prescription drugs are combined and ingested. So help keep our community healthy by disposing of old medicines safely at this community event sponsored by the Optimist Club of Mesa and Mesa Police in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration.
