DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - A number of facilities across the Miami Valley opened prescription drug drop off sites as part of National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day Saturday.
The day is part of a national initiative held by the Drug Enforcement Administration at locations all across the country.
The R.A.N.G.E. Task Force along with the Washington Township Fire Department is sponsoring a drug collection at the Washington Township Fire Department at 8320 McEwen Road.
Grandview Hospital in Dayton is also hosting a drop site located at 405 West Grand Avenue.
People can bring in unwanted or unneeded over the counter or prescription medications to any of the drop off sites to make sure they are disposed of properly.
More than 200 sites in Ohio are taking part in the drug take-back event that runs from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
"Prescription drug abuse is still a very serious issue in Ohio," said Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine. "By properly disposing of the prescription medications you don't need, they won't end up in the wrong hands."
National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposal, while also educating the public about the potential for abuse of these medications.
