January 15, 2019
Burrell Pharmacy is excited to announce that it now offers anonymous, safe medication takeback services via secure cabinets at its Burrell Pharmacy (1300 E. Bradford Parkway) and Transitions Pharmacy (323 E. Grand St.) in Springfield. The Burrell Pharmacy in Columbia (3401 Berrywood) will offer the service in coming weeks.

Both prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications are welcome in any type of receptacle -- the process is completely anonymous, so there is no need to remove labels or re-package the pills.

-- All over-the-counter or prescription pills
-- Any type of container or packaging
What CAN'T be dropped off in a takeback cabinet?
-- Illicit drugs or other materials
