Outdated prescription drugs to be collected starting Saturday

People with outdated prescription drugs can dispose of them safely and anonymously beginning Saturday as the islands join a nation-wide movement to keep old medications away from potential abusers and out of Hawaii’s water supply.

Only tablets, capsules and other solid medications will be accepted and incinerated according to federal and state environmental guidelines, Hawaii Attorney General Mark Bennett announced today.

Intravenous solutions, injectibles and syringes will not be allowed.
