The Alliance of Southwest Missouri has received 30,000 medication disposal bags. You simply place the unwanted pills in the pouch and add water, dissolving the drugs. Marlissa Diggs of the Alliance says they’re looking for convenient places to get them in the hands of those who will use them.
“We’d like to make them available to the public, but would like to have them in agencies and offices such as doctor’s offices, dentist’s offices, perhaps pharmacies so that anyone who may have a prescription that they need to dispose of unused pills would have an easy way to do so,” Diggs says.
If your company would like to get some of the disposal bags you can call the Alliance at (417) 782-9899.
