New Year's Resolution: Clean out your medicine cabinets!

Start 2019 on the right foot by getting rid of excess and/or expired medications using our Deterra drug deactivation bags and buckets! Each bag and bucket contains non-toxic chemicals that safely dissolve pills and patches, allowing for environmentally safe disposal. Deterra bags help keep medication out of the wrong hands and guarantee safe disposal for our environment. Order them from our website.

Thank you to AmerisourceBergen for their donation of 2,000 disposal bags. Donations like these help ensure that we can continue to serve Alaskans and reach our vision of Alaska Native people being the healthiest in the world!
