Organizers of the initiative say the aim is to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs no longer needed or expired, while educating the public about a potential for abuse of medications.

At least five area law enforcement agencies plan to participate.

The list includes the Mercer county sheriff's office (802 East Main) in Princeton, Putnam county sheriff's office in the basement of the courthouse at Unionville, and Harrison county sheriff's office (1501 Central) in Bethany.

Others are police departments in Hamilton 104 West School) and Cameron (101 North Chestnut). Disposal time at those cites is from 10 to 2 o'clock.

Trenton has a permanent drugs collection box inside the entryway to the law enforcement center. Information from Police Chief Tommy Wright indicates ten pounds of unwanted, or no longer needed, medications were deposited last month.

Wright said that raises the total to 68 and a half pounds of prescription and over-the-counter medications taken off the street and out of the water system/landfill since August 2013. (8 months)

The Community 2000 Coalition, Trenton Police, and Grundy County Sheriff's Department sponsor the collection box for anyone to deposit any unwanted medications 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
