Putnam County Participating DEA’s 20th Annual Drug Take Back Day

Putnam County is participating in the DEA’s 20th Annual Drug Take Back Day, which allows residents to safely dispose of expired, unwanted, and unused prescription medications. Locally, citizens can take their prescription medications to the Putnam County Sheriff’s office and dispose of them in a locked box. No appointment is needed, no paperwork has to be completed. At its last Take Back Day in October, DEA collected a record-high amount of close to 500 tons of unwanted drugs.
