This Friday, October 7th, between 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., Franklin County Sheriff’s Deputies, along with officers from the Oldenburg Police Department will be set up at the Village Store at 22182 Main Street in Oldenburg to collect any unwanted, unused, or expired prescription medication for safe disposal.

The last drive-thru event for 2022, will be held on Tuesday, October 11th, between 5:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m., in the parking lot of the Cedar Grove Fire Department on 2nd Street in Cedar Grove.
