Dispose of unused medications properly

Saturday - September 27, 2014, 10 am - 2 pm

90% of teens get prescription drugs from the home medicine cabinet and friends. Participating in this drug take-back event instead of leaving medications unsecured in your home or flushing them down the toilet with help prevent drug abuse and protect our valley's waterways.

  • Salem - Super Shoes on Main Street
  • Vinton - Hardy Road Kroger
  • Tanglewood Mall Kroger
  • Bonsack Kroger on Route 460 East

No appointment is necessary - the public is welcome. Simply bring your medications to this event where they can be safely collected and destroyed by local law enforcement and DEA agents.

VOLUNTEERES ARE ALSO NEEDED! All you need to do is to show up, bring a chair, sunscreen, water, and help pass out brochures to the community. There will be two uniformed police officers at each location to handle the prescriptions. By volunteering you will be helping the Prevention Council with our efforts to end the abuse of prescription medication in our community. Limiting access to old and unused medications by destroying them is the first step in helping to enforce community change.
