Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine reports the 2013 drug take-back day produced over 11 tons of medications returned by residents in the Buckeye State. More than 23,700 pounds of unwanted pills were dropped-off at 238 collection sites, including the Henry County Sheriff’s office and Wauseon police. The Henry County sheriff’s office collected about 65 pounds of pills; while Wauseon Police pulled-in 40 pounds. And the communities of Archbold and Delta collected 20 pounds each at their local police department.
By donating these unwanted pills, residents are keeping this prescription medication out of the hands of children, and from thieves looking to support an addiction to pain killers.
