New locations in Lewis County for drug take back


In order to provide a safe way to dispose of unused prescription drugs, the United Prevention Coalition of Lewis County has placed Deterra Containers at area health centers.

Kicking off the four-stop tour earlier this month, Cassie Forbus Coalition Coordinator along with Anita K. Seefried-Brown, project director for the Alliance for Better Communities, joined Alex Hazard of ABC50 and the staff of the Copenhagen Health Center for a ribbon cutting.

“The Deterra Medicine Disposal containers offer a safe reliable drop off for expired or unused prescription drugs,” Cassie Forbus Coalition Coordinator said, noting each container can hold more than 1,000 pills along with liquids and patches.
