Drug Takeback results
On Saturday, Oct. 26, Warren County Law Enforcement (YPD, WCSO, and WCPD) collected approximately 456 pounds of expired, unused, and outdated medication. The DEA collected the 18 boxes of medication from our county and will destroy it all.
From the very first one of 21 pounds in 2010 to nearly 500 pounds in 2019, local residents really seem to appreciate the police departments collecting it all and don’t have to worry about burglars stealing it or flushing it into the water system.
