Buffalo's Drug Take-Back event was this past Saturday at the Shopko in Buffalo, a happening coinciding with the 10th National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.
The idea is to safely dispose of the drugs by keeping them out of landfills and sewer systems to protect the environment, and also to keep them from those who might possibly abuse them.
Bill Hawley, with the Prevention Management Organization of Wyoming, Robin King, with Johnson County Public Health, along with local law enforcement were on hand Saturday to collect the unwanted medications, but also to give information to the public concerning some new programs recently implemented.
Hawley explains more about the event.
Robin King described the donation program and how it
Although no final amount of drugs collected is known yet, it was estimated that more than ten pounds had been collected early in the collection day.
