Banner Family Pharmacy has added a convenient way to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or are expired. Simply bring the prescription, including controlled substances, or over-the-counter medications to one of the five Banner Family Pharmacy locations featuring the MedSafe container to anonymously dispose of any medications.
The take-back unit is safe and easy to use. Medications should be left in their original packaging, or placed into clear bags, and dropped into the device slot. Pills, ointments/creams, powders, nebulizer solutions and liquid medications less than 4 ounces are accepted. Please do not place needles, aerosol substances like an inhaler or other medical supplies in the device.
The MedSafe unit is accessible during regular pharmacy hours. For any questions or concerns, please meet with the friendly pharmacy staff at the location nearest you:
