Pharmacy students at Purdue University know the importance of properly disposing of expired or otherwise unwanted medications. That is why they are hosting another series of single-day medicine take-back events on campus in April.

Saturday, April 13, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Spring Fling located at the Heine Pharmacy Building

Friday, April 19, from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Ismail Center/ Lambert Fieldhouse

Sunday, April 21, from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Elliott Hall of Music

Prescription and over-the-counter medicines will be accepted. The events will not accept needles/ sharps, thermometers, or medical waste. The take-backs are sponsored by faculty and students of Purdue College of Pharmacy. For more information, contact Shannon Eaves at
