Elkin Valley Trails Association and the Yadkin Riverkeeper organization partnered with Walgreen’s and the Elkin Police Department to pick up and dispose of outdated prescription drugs Saturday.


The event was held from 10 a.m. till 2 p.m. in the Walgreens parking lot in Elkin.


The prescriptions were brought in by people who had outdated pills and wanted to dispose of them, but did not want to flush them down a toilet and eventually into the Yadkin. Identification information such as names were removed from the labels and then put into a box for transport to a nearby State Bureau of Investigation office on Tuesday, according to Chief Monroe Wagoner of the Elkin Police.


When the pills are delivered to the SBI they are incinerated at roughly 1800-2400 degrees Fahrenheit. He added that a disposal can was also available in the lobby of the police department. The unit is a permanent fixture and serves the same role when mobile units are not being manned.


Wagoner said addition days of disposal could be found at www.operationmedicinedrop.com. By selecting “SITEMAP” at the top of the homepage additional dates, times and locations in the area can be found.
