Saturday, April 22 -- 8:45-10:45 am

Meet us at 8:45 AM for a 1.5 to 2 hour paddle and light-duty, in-boat cleaning of Turkey Creek in the Turkey Creek Sanctuary. Besides the basics (canoe/kayak, PFD, whistle, paddle, water, hat and sunscreen) bring a garbage bag, light work gloves and a long-reach grabber - if you have one. A kayak dolly is handy for the short walk from the cars to the Creek. We will remove small-sized trash from Turkey Creek on our way to the canoe deck. We will NOT meet at Alex Goode Park. For our put-in location, contact Jim Gering, preferably by email: gering@fit.edu or by phone: 321-674-7106.

How to Get Rid of Expired--and Other Unneeded-Medicines in Brevard

At the beginning of a new year, it becomes clear which drugs expired some time last year.  That makes this an appropriate time to post how to get rid of expired--or otherwise unwanted--medicines. This information is correct to the best of our knowledge and may change at the discretion of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office and Police Departments listed.

So how do I dispose of unwanted or expired medications?

1. PLEASE DO NOT THROW MEDICATIONS AWAY!  
     Medications can end up in the hands of children, animals or drug users. Drugs that make it into the landfill can contaminate the soil and groundwater.

2. PLEASE DO NOT FLUSH MEDICATIONS!
     Disposing of medications in the sink or toilet can be very harmful to the environment!

3. DO Drop off your unwanted and expired medication at local law enforcement agencies to be properly destroyed. They accept all prescription, non-prescription, over-the-counter (pills, liquids, ointments or lotions) including pet medications.  Please make sure that the medication is properly sealed and does not leak.

4.  They CANNOT accept syringes, asthma inhalers, drugs in aerosol canisters or chemotherapy drugs in either IV liquid or oral form.  Contact your pharmacist to dispose of these medications.

DROP OFF LOCATIONS
Open Monday – Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. during normal business hours (Please call ahead to ensure a deputy or other responsible person is available)
