Operation Medicine Drop
The Henderson County Sheriff’s Office will be participating in North Carolina’s 2nd Annual Operation Medicine Drop. This program is administered by Safe Kids North Carolina and is designed to provide citizens with opportunities to safely and securely dispose of unused, unwanted or expired medications.
In 2010 this program collected and disposed of more than 2 million dosage units of medications across the state.
