Jackson County Sheriff’s Office holds Drug Take-Back event

JACKSON COUNTY, Ore. – Residents in Jackson County will have some opportunities this week to get rid of old or unused prescription drugs.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office in collaboration with Oregon’s Safe Drug Disposal is holding a Medication Take-Back event at three locations on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

Unaccepted items include herbal remedies, vitamins, supplements, other personal care products, emptied medical devices, batteries, mercury-containing thermometers, sharps, illicit drugs, pet pesticide products, animal medicines, and biologics.

The sheriff’s office is also reminding the community to remove all personal information on medication labels before dropping them off.

More information can be found on Oregon’s Safe Drug Disposal website.
