Operation Medicine Cabinet - NC
Protecting our kids, communities and waters!
Purpose & Plan
Impact on Our Town - New Bern
Pharmaceuticals are safely collected twice each year in take-back programs working in collaboration between state and local officials. These drugs are then out of reach of others and prevent abuse, misuse and overdose. Our kids and communities are healthier and our waters are cleaner. Will you become part of the solution?
Meds are 2nd leading cause of unintentional injuries & deaths among young children
Misuse and abuse lead to increased crime and emergency hospital care, i.e., costs
Over 80% of tested NC waterways are contaminated with meds
