Operation Medicine Drop A Success

Posted: Updated:

BERLIN, Md. - Assateague COASTKEEPER announced on Wednesday that the September 29th Operation Medicine Drop drug take-back day netted 134 lbs of expired or unused medications throughout Worcester County in a four hour period.

Unused medications, if not properly disposed of, can find their way into the community, posing a health threat to families, especially small children who often ingest medications mistaking them for candy. Unused medications also pose a safety threat to the community if narcotic, or controlled prescriptions,  find their way into the wrong hands.  

Drop boxes are still available for those who need to dispose of old or unused prescription medication.

The Ocean City permanent drug drop box is located in the front lobby of the Ocean City Police Department. The Ocean Pines permanent drug drop box is located in the front lobby of the Ocean Pines Police Department.
