A steady flow of people took advantage of the first Prescription Drug Take Back Day, held Saturday at Walgreen's in Sheridan. Sheridan Media's Mary Jo Johnson has more.
It was a glorious Indian Summer day as members of the Sheridan County Sheriff's Office, the Sheridan Police Department, the Alliance for Substance Abuse Prevention, or ASAP, and representatives from Sheridan Media collected medications of all shapes, sizes, colors and forms.
I had a chance to speak with Steve Johnston, the Evidence Technician with the Sheridan Police Department about the significance of the day.
As Steve said, the secure drop boxes are located in the lobbies of both the Sheridan Police Department and the Sheriff's office, generously provided by ASAP. You can take your unused medications there any time.
