Doing our part to help keep pharmaceuticals out of South Carolina’s rivers, lakes, and drinking water, Lee’s Inlet Apothecary is offering free and safe disposal of unwanted medications. Our Takeaway™ program sends returned medications to a fully licensed and regulated incineration facility. Both the EPA and World Health Organization recommend this method of disposal over flushing or throwing away unused medications. Please check below to find out which medications are accepted, and how to return them to Lee’s Inlet Apothecary.
