Medication Take Back Event A Success

Safety officials say the medication collection event held in Findlay last weekend went very well.

The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office says, with assistance from the Findlay Police Department and the University of Findlay Pharmacy students, they we were able to collect 225 pounds of old, unused medication.

The medication take back event was held at the Findlay Municipal Building south parking lot on Saturday.

People were able to simply drive up and drop off their old medications, and dispose of them in a way that’s safe for the environment and good for the community.

Many people flush their medications, leading to environmental concerns.

Others dispose of medications in the trash or leave them in their house where someone could find them and abuse them.

Both the Findlay Police Department and Hancock County Sheriff’s Office have medication collection boxes in their lobby where you can dispose of your old medications.
