1,126.6 Pounds of Medication and 13 Bins of Sharps Collected at HC DrugFree's Site

Another semi-annual national Drug Take Back Day was held today between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and HC DrugFree's convenient drive-thru collection site gathered 1,126.6 pounds of expired and unwanted prescription and over-the-counter medication and 13 large bins of "sharps" (needles, syringes, and EpiPens). Across Howard County, a total of 1,246.6 pounds of medications were collected today. Thank you to everyone working along with us in the 90+ degree weather today: the Howard County Police Department, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Adult Drug/DUI Treatment Court, the Howard County State's Attorney's Office, Soroptimist International Mid-Atlantic, HC DrugFree's Teen Advisory Council (TAC), and all our volunteers.

It takes a village and this village cares about our children, families, clean water, and the landfill.

HC DrugFree's board of directors and staff are proud to serve the Howard County community and thank you for supporting another successful medication and sharps collection.
