LIMA — Residents in the greater Lima region will have the opportunity safely dispose of unwanted prescription drugs at numerous locations throughout the area Saturday.
Ohio U.S. Senators Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman earlier this week announced nearly 250 sites where Ohioans can take part in National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The nationwide event is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Administration in an effort to provide safe, convenient and responsible means for disposal of prescription drugs, while also educating the public about the potential for abuse and medications, the senators said in a joint press release.
