205 Pounds of Pills Safely Disposed at Medication Disposal Day

Sheriff Tim Bailey and his staff thank everyone who brought their old and unused prescriptions out this weekend to be disposed of properly.

If you missed the event this weekend the sheriff's office has a disposal box at the sheriff's office you can drop them off anytime. Pill bottles are always shredded so your personal and health information stay secure. Deputies and the MARMET Drug Task Force collected 205 pounds of pills for safe disposal, and MARCA shredded & recycled nearly a ton of items. Aqua Ohio sponsored a great lunch for volunteers from Sansotta's Fresh Italian. Thank you DKMM, Aqua Ohio, MARCA, ADAMH, Marion Recycling and Litter Prevention, Marion County Commissioners and Marion City Police who helped with the event as well.
