MCSO offers drug take back program April 27

ABERDEEN – On April 27, the Monroe County Sheriff Office will take part in the “DEA National Prescription Drug Take Back Initiative.”
This is a great opportunity for residents of Monroe County to safely dispose of unwanted and unused prescription drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinets. Help us change this by participating in the initiative.
Collection location will be MCSO, 700 North Meridian St., in Aberdeen on April 27 between the hours of 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. It is simple and easy, all you have to do is drop off your unused or expired prescription medication. You do not have to leave your name or sign any forms.
The MCSO invites everyone to come help make this program a success.
