Residents in Jacksonville now have a secure drop box for old prescription disposal.
The Jacksonville Police Department says that a grant from CVS CAREMARK has provided their community with a new drug collection unit. CVS CAREMARK’s Medication Disposal for Safer Communities program is providing 1,000 receptacles to be awarded to Police Departments nationwide. The grant program is a partnership with The Partnership at Drugfree.org. Officials encourage Jacksonville residents to come and make us of the unit on National Take Back Prescription Drug Day. The Jacksonville Police Department will be participating in day on Saturday September 27th from 10:00AM until 2:00PM.
