Sample Public Service Announcement Language


Option 1

Ever wonder what to do with all those old pills that pile up in your medicine cabinet? Don’t throw them in the garbage, pour them down the drain, or flush them! This contaminates our water and can put drugs in the hands of potential addicts, children, and pets. Safely dispose of leftover meds by dropping them off at a drug take-back location near you. Bringing unwanted or expired medicines back keeps drugs off the streets, away from kids, and out of the environment water supply.

[Visit participating pharmacy name/police station name and address today] OR [call agency name at XXX-XXX-XXXX to find a collection location near you.] 

 

Option 2
Do you hear that? [Ambulance alarm] That’s the sound of your leftover medication. Every 14 minutes, a U.S. citizen dies from a drug overdose. They often get hooked from pills in the medicine cabinet. Now more than ever, we need YOU to help stop the abuse. Remove unused prescription drugs from your home and [bring them to participating pharmacy name/police station name and address today] OR [call agency name at XXX-XXX-XXXX to find a collection location near you.] We all need to do more to save our communities from this epidemic. Join the fight today.
