Fill out the quick online form to get a mail-back envelope sent right to your home from the Vermont Department of Health.
In order to keep households safe while kids are at home, this is a good time to get old and expired prescription medications out of the house with a free, postage-paid mail back envelope. Place prescription drugs (up to 8 ounces total) in the envelope and drop it in the mail for easy and safe incineration.
Everyone can do their part with these important practices: Lock up meds in the home, Monitor medicine use, and Safely dispose of expired or unused medications. Talk to your kids about the dangers of taking a medication that wasn’t prescribed to them. All this prevents misuse, poisonings, and addiction.
Your local stores can help your community be healthy! Here’s how. Check out our flyer about Point of Sale.
