Marsh encourages customers to clean out medicine cabinets

INDIANAPOLIS — Marsh Supermarkets is inviting customers to properly dispose of their unused, unwanted and/or expired medications.

From Sept. 21 to 24, Marsh pharmacies will collect and qualify unwanted medications for free disposal. Pills, capsules and liquids are accepted for disposal, and the medicine must be in original container with original label intact, Marsh said.

The takeback program is brought in partnership with such private and public organizations as Indiana University Health, the Indiana Department of Environmental Management, Indiana Poison Center, Indiana Association for Home and Hospice Care, packaging company Rexam and solutions firm Inmar. Marsh also noted that the program is for individuals only, and that nothing will be accepted from health centers, clinics, doctor's offices or other organizations.
