Drug disposal available
The lobby at the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office has a new prescription drug take- back box for public use during business hours.
Typically, a prescription drug take-back event is held biannually for citizens to safely dispose of unused, expired or unwanted over-the-counter and/or prescription drugs.
Those events will continue, but the new box gives the public the chance to dispose of prescription drugs more often.
The main lobby of the Sheriff’s Office, 215 Rice St., is open from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday except for holidays.
The box was given to the Sheriff’s Office by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
The Sheriff’s Office cannot take the following items: needles/sharps, aerosol, items that contain mercury, chemotherapy or radioactive substances, oxygen, and pressurized canisters.
The Mesa County Hazardous Waste Collection Facility will take many of those items free of charge. Call 257-9336 or 256-9543.
