Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient,
and responsible means for disposing of unwanted prescription drugs, while also
educating the community about the potential for abuse of medications. Properly
disposing of medication also contributes to keeping our waterways and
environment protected and healthy. Drop off unused and/or expired prescription and over-the-counter medications.
Franklin County is fortunate to be home to several permanent drug drop-off locations. For a complete list of those permanent sites, visit http://www.swaco.org/196/Pharmaceutical .
