Community SPOTLIGHT: Rx Take Back Day RECAP!

Thanks to our very own Becky Cross and the Dennis-Kemp YMCA for another great Rx Take Back Day that happend at the end of last month! The final numbers were 57.6 lbs from the Dennis-Kemp YMCA location and 1,187 lbs from Precinct 5 in Marietta! Out of the 7,107 lbs that came of out the state of Georgia, we got over 1,000 lbs of that came out of Cobb County! Great work!

For year-round drop off sites, check out the resources below! If you would like to receive Rx Disposal Packets to assist in proper disposal of any other expired or unused medications in the home, text “MEDS” to 85775!

As always, we encourage securely lock away all current medications in the home to remove the access from those they are not intended!
