National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

imageSaturday is National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. Marion County Solid Waste is the central disposal location for medications at 5601 S.E. 66th Street. While they aren’t participating in the national event per se… they’ll do you one better! They will be open during their normal business hours this Saturday: 7a-5p (you can call 2-1-1 24/7 to get information about their other days of operation and their additional services year round).
