There are three permanent takeback collection sites in Franklin Co.
(Franklin County, Ind.) – The Franklin County Sheriff’s Department is celebrating the success of recent prescription drug take back events.
Deputies collected a combined 75 pounds of unwanted, unused, or expired medications during take back events at United Methodist Church in Brookville and the Metamora Volunteer Fire Department.
“Anytime that you can prevent that amount of unwanted, unused, or expired medication from getting into the wrong hands, or prevent that amount from getting into the environment, that is a huge win for our community,” said Deputy Jason Lovins. “All of this would not have been possible without collaboration with our community partners: Margaret Mary Health, Stayin’ Alive LCC, Metamora Volunteer Fire Department, and the Brookville United Methodist Church. Most of all, it would not have been possible without our citizens,” Lovins continued.
Community members are reminded that there are three permanent takeback collection sites in Franklin County. They are the Sheriff’s Department, Margaret Mary Health in Batesville, and the Batesville Police Department.
