Drug Take Back Day A Success


Knox County, OH – Saturday, April 29, 2017, Knox County participated in the national Spring Drug Take Back Day. Although it was a rainy day, we were able to collect 119 pounds of unused, unwanted and expired medication. This year also brought in quite a few liquids, patches and inhalants.

Specifically, 48 lbs. were collected at the Knox County Health Department, 20 lbs. were collected at Centerburg Foster’s Pharmacy, 8 lbs. were collected at the Danville Police Department and 43 lbs. were collected at the Fredericktown Police Department.

KSAAT would like to thank the Knox County Sheriff’s Office, Fredericktown Police Department, Danville Police Department and the Mount Vernon Police Department for leading each drop-off location as well as all of the KSAAT volunteers that donated their time to make this event a success.

The next county-wide drug take back day will be held this Fall. However, you can always anonymously drop off your medications at our two 24/7 drop-boxes. These drop-boxes are located at the Mount Vernon Police Department and the Knox County Sheriff’s Office. Please do not dispose of liquids, inhalers, or illegals in the drop-boxes.

KSAAT thanks all of you for spring cleaning your medicine cabinets to make Knox County safer! Unite in our Fight!
