Community Crime Prevention: Prescription Drug Round-up & Hard Drive Wiping / Recycling

London Drugs is partnering with the Lethbridge Regional Police Service, Airdrie RCMP, and Red Deer RCMP to help prevent fraud and prescription drug abuse within communities.

Prescription Drug Round-ups & Hard Drive Wiping / Recycling events are being held in Lethbridge, Airdrie and Red Deer on May 24th.

 

Prescription Drug Round-up

Along with local police forces, London Drugs is hosting a Prescription Drug Round-up in response to the growing concern regarding prescription drug abuse among teens in Alberta communities. It was recently reported that almost as many as 1 in 4 who use these drugs daily obtained their prescription drugs from friends or relatives. The Prescription Drug Round-up event aims to decrease the amount of expired or unused prescription drugs in households, where too often teens are finding access to these potentially dangerous drugs. Drop off unused or expired prescription medications in store for safe disposal.

 
Hard Drive Wiping

Your computer stores valuable personal data, which can be very tempting to those involved in identity theft. When recycling your old computer at London Drugs, your hard drives are cleaned and destroyed so that your information is no longer accessible to thieves. Customers are invited to drop off old hard drives for data destruction and responsible recycling.

 
Individuals can drop off their expired or unused prescriptions and hard drives at the following London Drugs locations and times below:

Red Deer
