Mercury Fever Thermometer Exchange & MedDrop Event
Back by popular demand! A perfect opportunity to safely dispose of mercury-containing fever thermometers and unused or expired medications.

Pill containers are not accepted, please place all pills in a sealed zip-locked bag, and remove all personal information from ointments, liquids, and creams.
