Improper disposal of medications is a growing concern which can lead to environmental problems and contribute to prescription drug abuse, especially among teens and young adults. The D.U.M.P. Program is designed to provide Medina County residents with a safe and easy option for disposing of unwanted medications.
Simply take the medicine to one of the 11 D.U.M.P. Box locations in the county and the medicine will be safely destroyed, no questions asked. The locations are permanent and are accessible seven days a week. You can deposit the medication in the original container (mark out any identifying information) or place the pills in the plastic zip lock bag.
Please note that the D.U.M.P. Boxes are for pills, capsules or liquids only. Syringes CANNOT be accepted at the D.U.M.P. Box.
ENCOURAGING APPROPRIATE USE AND AVAILABILITY OF OPIOID PAIN MEDICATIONS Did you know that the Governor's Cabinet Opiate Action Team has released opioid prescribing guidelines for emergency departments and acute care facilties, as well as for healthcare professionals who treat patients with chronic pain and acute pain. The guidelines are designed to make sure that patients receive the pain medication they need while reducing leftover opioids available for diversion and abuse. There were 81 million fewer opioid doses dispensed to Ohio patients in 2015 compared to 2011. Also, the percentage of prescription opioid-related deaths compared to all unintentional overdose deaths declined for the fourth straight year in 2015.
