The Mexico Public Safety Department will be hosting a drug take back this Saturday, April 27th.
This effort is undertaken to provide the community with appropriate disposal of their expired, unused, or unwanted prescription medications.
The benefits of the Take Back event include that these prescription medications do not fall into the hands of youth where they may be abused or distributed inappropriately.
Also the proper disposal of these medications aids in protecting the environment as it is detrimental to ground source water if medications are flushed.
Unwanted medications can be taken to the Mexico Public Safety Fire Station located at 300 North Coal from 10-2.
