Drive-Through Pill Collection Event
Drop off your unused or expired medications on Saturday, April 28, 2018 from 10am-2pm in the parking lot of the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office located at 100 North Grove Street. The event is being operated drive through style, allowing residents to remain in their vehicles and quickly and conveniently dispose of the medications they no longer need.
This collection event is part of the National Take Back Initiative, sponsored by the US Drug Enforcement Agency and in partnership with Operation Medicine Drop. Sheriff’s Office deputies and employees, along with Hope Rx will be collecting, weighing and incinerating the collected medications.
During the week, residents can always bring their unused medications to the lobby of the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office. This service is available year-round from 8am-5pm Monday-Friday. The Sheriff’s Office drug disposal program was implemented in April of 2013, and since its inception over 6,000 pounds of unwanted medication have been taken in and destroyed.
