Franklin County To Participate In Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

SWACO is a proud partner in the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day which aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means for disposing of unwanted prescription drugs, while also educating the community about the potential for abuse of medications. Properly disposing of medication also contributes to keeping our waterways and environment protected and healthy.

More than a dozen locations and partners are helping to bring this initiative to Franklin County which will be held on Saturday, October 26 from 10 am to 2 pm.

Please don’t put prescription drugs in the trash. Instead, stop by one of these locations to safely dispose of unwanted prescription drugs. Please note that only pills will be accepted at all of these locations unless otherwise noted.
