Boone County Hometown Health Improvement Quarterly Meeting
We encourage you to "Monitor, Secure and Dispose"of your prescription medications. Store medicine in a locked box. Remove old medications, but DO NOT flush unwanted drugs, or place in trash. The National Prescription Take Back Initiative schedules collection events each spring and fall. The Harrison Police Dept and the Boone County Sheriffs Office participates in these events, and have set disposal bins at their locations for drop offs at any times.

It is time to Clean out your medicine cabinet of outdated, unused or unwanted medications. If you find that you have anything like this in your cabinet or on your shelves, this is a great time to get rid of them. Come on by. Takeback is a great service to our community because it promotes a safe method of getting rid of our unused medications and keeping them out of the hands of our youth.
