Medication Take Back Day

(Saturday, September 26, 2015) The community is invited to participate in an event for people to dispose of their unwanted, unused, or expired medications. This event is sponsored by RSVP, Washington County Sheriff’s Office, Area Agency on Aging, The Right Path for Washington County, and Memorial Health System.

People can attend the event by showing up on September 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at any of these collection sites:

  • Belpre Senior Center, Belpre
  • Corner of Second and Putnam Streets, Marietta
  • White Oak Pharmacy, Barlow
  • Fort Frye High School, Beverly

This event is designed to keep the community safe and limit the risks of:

  • Drugs being stolen and illegally sold.
  • Children and pets being poisoned if they find and swallow drugs.
  • Unused medications are environmental toxins; flushing them down the toilet or sink can contaminate our soil and drinking water.
