Drug “Take Back” Initiative

It’s a great time to clean out your medicine cabinet!

Protect our kids, families and environment by properly disposing of your unwanted and expired medicines. Medicines in the home are a leading cause of accidental poisoning and flushed or trashed medicines can end up polluting our waters. Rates of prescription drug abuse are alarmingly high – over half of teens abusing medicines get them from a family member or friend, including the home medicine cabinet, and often without their knowledge.

Drop off your unused or unwanted medicines at the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office drop box located in the front lobby.  The box is sponsored by Pittsburg Sunrise and Noon Rotary Clubs and Frontenac Rotary Club.
