Ohio Prescription Drug Drop Box Now Available at Municipal Building

GOLF MANOR (6/15/2018) – Need a place to safely dispose of unneeded or expired prescription drugs? The Golf Manor Police Department now hosts a free prescription drug drop off site at the Police department located inside the lobby of the Municipal Building located at 6450 Wiehe Road.

As part of the Ohio Prescription Drug Drop Box Program, the collection bin will be open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The boxes provide a convenient way to get unneeded, potentially addictive and deadly drugs out of people’s homes, away from children and addicts, out of the garbage, away from animals and out of the water supply.

Laura L. McCreadie (MSN RN), Director of Nursing and Disease Prevention for the Hamilton County Board of Health stated, “Prescription drug abuse and overdose prevention starts with families, at home. Communities that offer safe disposal options, like drug drop boxes, are giving families a chance to keep their loved ones safe and decreasing the risk of prescription drug abuse.”

A 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health found that 6.4 million Americans abused controlled prescription medications. These prescription drugs came from family and friends, often from their own home medicine cabinet. According to the DEA, more than 366 tons of prescription drugs were collected at 5,200 drop-off sites across the country in 2016.

Not accepted at the site are liquids, aerosols, inhalers, needles or (plastic/glass) bottles.

*Due to incineration requirements, plastic pill bottles are not accepted. Please place all pills and tablets into a zip-lock type bag for disposal.*
