Community Drug Disposal Day will be held this Saturday, May 14, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at McMinnville Police Department. Prescription and over-the-counter medications will be accepted anonymously and destroyed.“It’s that time again,” said McMinnville Police Investigator Capt. Derwin Adcock, who is in charge of collecting, bagging and sealing the medications.The Police Department tries to hold two drug disposal days each year to get unused medications/ drugs out of people’s homes to prevent them from finding a new home on the street. Everyone is encouraged to look through their medicine and drop off any that are unwanted, says Adcock.The event is a joint effort between the department, the Student’s Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) Team at the high school, and the District Attorney General’s office of Lisa Zavogiannis.“We are really excited to offer this again,” said SADD sponsor Lynn Seals.
