Drug take-back site set in North Vernon

The North Vernon Fire Department will be one of five Indiana locations for the annual nationwide drug take-back at the end of the month.

Set for April 28 to29 this year, the drug take-back encourages Hoosiers to safely dispose of old medicines. North Vernon Fire Department, 2000 N. Madison Ave., North Vernon, will accept all unwanted and unused drugs for appropriate removal.

Proper disposal of old medicines prevents the likelihood of medicine theft, prescription drug abuse, accidental poisoning and identity theft.
