Drug Take Back Day October 22


Where are your left over, unwanted prescription drugs? It’s not uncommon for people to store them in a bathroom vanity drawer or somewhere else that is easily accessible to people in the household. Don’t let your unused prescription drugs fall into the hands of an unsuspecting person who may take them without you knowing. Dispose of your unwanted drugs properly. Don’t flush them down the toilet!

SWACO, local law enforcement, retailers and partners collaborate twice a year to bring Prescription Drug Take Back Day to Franklin County. This year, it will be held on Saturday October 22, from 10 am to 2 pm. For a list of locations where you can drop off your medications, go to www.swaco.org.
