On April 18, 2015 from 10am to 2pm Officers from the Frederick Police Department and Pharmacists from Whitesell were on hand at Harry Grove Stadium to collect unwanted prescription medications.

Members from the Health Department, Axillary Police volunteers and Whitesell staff also came out to support the event. With lines down the parking lot, it took every member to collect over 1,568 pounds of unused prescription medication.

The event was a huge success thanks to the citizens of Frederick. The drug disposal is an important step in keeping prescription drugs out of the hands of our youth and protecting the environment.

For anyone who missed the event or needs to dispose of future medications, there are several drug drop boxes through out the area.
