This Saturday is Drug Take Back Day
It’s time to clean out the medicine cabinet and dispose of any old and unused prescription or over the counter medications. Many local police and sheriff’s departments are participating in this year’s National Prescription Drug Take Back day which is sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Administration. Officers will be on hand for Saturday’s environmentally safe disposal of the medications from 10 am until 2 pm to accept the medications with a no questions policy. They want to make it clear that it is not safe to flush unwanted medicines down the toilet because the drugs leak into local water systems. They say it can also be dangerous to put these medications in the trash or allow them to remain in the medicine cabinet. Leslie Earhart says the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Department has a standing drug drop-box in their office. (bg)
