Camden County Installs Prescription Drug Drop Box
The Camden County Sheriff’s Office is installing a drop box for residents to safely dispose of their unused and expired prescription drugs:
Sheriff Dwight Franklin says local residents wanting to turn in their unused or expired medications can do so at any time, anonymously, starting tomorrow:
Instead of throwing old medicines away where they could be accessed by others, or flushing them down the toilet where they could enter the groundwaterwater, Sheriff Dwight Franklin is encouraging residents to use the new drop box:
Sheriff Dwight Franklin says he plans to expand the program, with additional drop off boxes in other locations throughout the county:
Franklin says citizens are encouraged to “black out” their personal information on the prescription bottles, but not the contents of the bottle itself. Being an anonymous program, no investigations will be conducted relative to any prescription being dropped off.
