(KEIZER, Ore.) - The Prescription Drug Turn-in event was held on Saturday at six sites throughout Marion County in Keizer, south Salem, northeast Salem, Silverton, Stayton and Turner.
Over 1,000 pounds of drugs from nearly 600 households were collected at the various sites. The Community Action Drug Prevention Network and the hosting law enforcement agencies wish to thank everyone who came out to properly dispose of their unused medications to keep them out of the environment and out of the wrong hands.
"In less than four hours, Marion County residents turned in approximately one half ton of pharmaceuticals for disposal," said DEA Salem Resident Agent in Charge Tyson Hodges. "This exemplifies DEA's efforts to work with many community partners to abate this growing public health concern."
