LUCAS COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -
The Lucas County Board of Commissioners, Lucas County Sheriff John Tharp, representatives from the United States Drug Enforcement Agency, along with reps from Reclaiming Futures, have announced a cooperative effort for a National Drug Take Back Initiative.
The seventh annual initiative will take place Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tharp and DEA agents will be manning 12 drop-off stations throughout the county. Citizens are encouraged to drop off potentially dangerous, expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. The service is free and anonymous, with no questions asked.
"Parents need to know that there are resources available to make sure dangerous drugs stay out of the hands of their children. This program is one way for parents to be able to dispose of prescription drugs that are no longer needed or wanted," explained Lucas County Commissioner Tina Skeldon Wozniak.
Tharp emphasizes that prescription drugs can be the most dangerous.
"Getting them out of bathroom cabinets and away from children and teenagers is one of the most important things we can do for our citizens," said Tharp.
