Sheriff’s Department to accept unwanted drugs

If Bartholomew County residents have expired, unused, and/or unwanted prescription drugs, they can safely dispose of them this Thursday.

Judy Jackson, spokesperson for the Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department, says that they will be working in conjunction with Cummins to provide a Community-wide Recycling Day. She says that the Sheriff’s Office will accept prescription drugs from county residents on that day, from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m., in the parking lot at Cummins CEP, at 500 Central Avenue.

Jackson stresses that medications will not be accepted from businesses, including pharmacies. She says that these businesses should properly manage their drug waste under federal and state hazardous waste regulations.

Jackson adds that Bartholomew County residents with questions should send an email to: [email protected].
