Prescription drug disposal offered
SALEM - On Saturday, Sept. 29, the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day, sponsored by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, will be held in communities across America, including Columbiana County, to raise awareness about the dangers of prescription drug abuse.
Locally, area residents will have an opportunity to drop off their unused, unwanted or expired medications from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 29, at three area locations:
- East Liverpool City Hospital's Main Entrance, 425 W. Fifth St., East Liverpool;
- Salem Medical Center (across the street from Salem Community Hospital), 2094 E. State St., Salem;
- Columbiana County Health Department, 7360 Route 45, Lisbon.
Area residents will remain in their cars and hand off the unwanted medications to local law enforcement officers, who will be the only staff handling the medications. No requests for identification will be asked. Medication may be kept in its original container or removed from the original container.
If an original container is disposed, try to remove any personal identifying information from the prescription label. Liquid medications may be dropped off, but make sure the cap is tightly sealed to prevent leakage.
Because of the easy access to prescription and over-the-counter medications within people's homes, this drop-off event is designed to create a way for adults to anonymously, legally, and safely dispose of unused, unwanted, and expired medicine.
