You can drop them off at the Number 7 Township Fire Department in New Bern, the Dover Fire Department and the Harlowe Fire Department in Havelock.

The drop-off happens between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday.

Not only can this help you de-clutter your medicine cabinet, but it will also make your family and guests safer. Medications are the leading cause of accidental poisoning among children.
