Medication disposal sites open Saturday


Area residents can dispose of unused pharmaceuticals during the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency’s National Drug Take Back Initiative from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

Lucas County Sheriff’s deputies and Drug Enforcement Agency officials will be at drop-off stations located throughout Toledo and the county.

Medications will be taken without charge and no questions will be asked.

The purpose of the program is to provide a venue for disposing of unwanted and unused prescription drugs to keep them from getting into the hands of children and to discourage disposing medications into sewer systems.
