FAYETTE COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE PARTICIPATING IN THE NATIONAL DRUG TAKE-BACK DAY ON
OCTOBER 28, 2017
On Saturday, October 28, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office will again partner with the Drug Enforcement Administration and other law enforcement agencies across the United States to give the public it’s 14th opportunity in 7 years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your pills for disposal to the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office Annex Building located at 110 W. Market Street in Washington Court House and pull to the rear parking lot where a deputy will meet you for disposal of your medications. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
Sheriff Vernon Stanforth also reminds you that in addition to participating in the National Take-Back Days, there is a disposal container in the lobby area of the Sheriff’s Office where these types of drugs can be disposed of any time throughout the year.
