DISPOSE OF OLD MEDICATIONS SAFELY
Drug disposal pouches are now available FREE at Acme. Simply drop in unwanted pills, add water, seal the pouch and throw it away. A carbon substance in the pouch will deactivate the pills, making it safe to dispose of in a landfill. The process turns the pills into mush and the pouch itself is biodegradable.
HOW TO GET A FREE DISPOSAL POUCH
The grocery store chain will provide 12,000 pouches through the pharmacies in its 16 locations. Pharmacy customers prescribed opioids will be given a pouch. Other Acme customers also can request a pouch at the pharmacies.
