Placeholder Image
Community Drug Disposal Day will be held this Saturday, April 21. The event will be from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at McMinnville Police Department.“Prescription and over-the-counter medications will be accepted anonymously and destroyed,” said McMinnville Police Investigator Capt. Derwin Adcock, who is in charge of collecting, bagging and sealing the medications.The department offers drug disposal days to get unused medications/ drugs out of people’s homes in an effort to prevent them from finding a new home on the street. Allowing donators to remain anonymous encourages participation.“We want to encourage everyone to look through their medicines and drop off any that are unwanted,” said Adcock.
