Get rid of unused drugs Saturday


— Prescription and over-the-counter medicines are being abused at an increasing rate.Keeping unused prescriptions and OTC creates ease of access and high levels of availability to dangerous drugs. Drug Dumps aim to provide a safe, convenient, and anonymous means of disposing of medications. Turning medications in at a, Drug Dumps Event is a responsible way to minimize access to dangerous medications while providing education to the general public about the potential abuse of medications.

The Mayes County HOPE Coalition has teamed up with the Pryor Police Department to collect prescription and over-the-counter medications. Just bring your unused or expired medications to the Wi-Fi kick-off party Saturday in downtown Pryor.
