Medication Disposal Program at TCRHCC is AVAILABLE

A safe place for our patients to dispose of unused, unwanted or expired medication.

The TCRHCC Medications Disposal Program is setup to help patients dispose of their medications correctly and to prevent throwing their medications in the trash or flushed down the toilet, where they have the potential to harm the environment, children and pets.
