Medication Disposal Program triples effectiveness in one year
The people who helped in this project: A. L. Sinclair, Ann Melton, Gale Cowan, Charles Greer, Terry Akin, Toni Burton, Matthew Humphress, Robin Spoon, Mark Harris, Sandy Wilson, Todd Akin, Preston Gaskin, Charles Sparks, Roger Cundiff and Chad Wheet.
By Rick Wilson
The second annual Medication Disposal Program was a tremendous success. We properly disposed of 590 bottles of medicine. Last year we disposed of 164.
This year 81 of the medicines were controlled or narcotics. The medicines came from 68 different people. Last year we were thrilled with an old bottle dating back to March 1982 but this year we had several in the 1980's and now the record oldest is dated May 9, 1973 and it was a controlled medicine.
We would like to thank the following: Alan Bottoms with Campbellsville Taylor County Rescue for the tent, The Bank of Columbia for the lot, The Adair Progress, ColumbiaMagazine.com, WAIN radio, WHVE radio and The Community Voice,. We want to especially thank the people that took time to go thru their medicine cabinets and bring in expired and unused medication to our program for proper disposal.
I appreciate all of the people that helped in this project: A. L. Sinclair, Ann Melton, Gale Cowan, Charles Greer, Terry Akin, Toni Burton, Matthew Humphress, Robin Spoon, Mark Harris, Sandy Wilson, Todd Akin, Preston Gaskin, Charles Sparks, Roger Cundiff and Chad Wheet.
We look forward to offering the program again in 2010.
Thank you,Rick Wilson
