The latest Drug Enforcement Agency Drug Take Back day was held this past Saturday. Once again, the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office participated, and once again, a record amount of pills was taken off the streets and out of landfills. According to Sheriff Tim Donnellon, citizens turned in 102 pounds of pills, topping the record 101 pounds collected in September of 2012. “We are so pleased to be able to be a drop off point for unwanted and expired medication,” said Sheriff Donnellon. “To keep these pills out of the hands of abusers and out of our drinking water is an exercise we plan to continue to take part in.” The latest numbers aren’t in nationwide. In September, 244 tons of pills were collected at more than 5200 locations. With the latest take back locally, the Sheriff’s Office has collected more than 341 pounds of prescription pills over six events.
