Take Back Prescription Drug Day will be Saturday

Mary Parish Sheriff's Office will participate Saturday in National Drug Take Back Day.

Saturday's collection marks the 14th opportunity in seven years that Dearborn residents are actively able to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially risky expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.

The event is being run as part of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency's National Drug Take Back Day. Last November, more than 456 tons of prescription drugs were collected across the county.

Volunteers will accept prescription drugs, over-the-counter drugs, pet medications, and vitamins and supplements. Drug Take Back Day provides a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposal, while also educating the community about the potential abuse and consequences of improper storage and disposal of these medications.

Wyandot County Sheriff's Office, 125 E. Wyandot Avenue, Upper Sandusky, from 10 a.m. -2 p.m.

People who want to dispose of the medications may simply drive up to either location.

It even has artificial intelligence that enables it to build up a character through its different interactions with people. A device like Pepper , which isn't created to be a consumer product, costs thousands of dollars and isn't that useful.

Because the home medicine cabinet is at the root of the epidemic for so many, each household has an opportunity to do everything they can to prevent inappropriate access to prescription opioids.

"This is a safe way to dispose of unused medications rather than disposing of the drugs into the water system", Dowell said.

The Greenwood Lake Police Department, located at 16 Church St in Greenwood Lake, has a designated drop box in their main lobby.

Drop-offs are free and anonymous with no questions asked. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the USA are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.

The DEA says residents should not flush drugs down the toilet or throw them into the garbage.

People who can not attend the event Saturday may drop off unused and unwanted prescriptions anytime in the bin located just inside the Sheriff's Office's main lobby.
