A drop-off box for unused, unwanted or expired prescription drugs has been set up by the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office in the lobby at its main office,18900 Cortez Blvd., Brooksville.
Residents can also drop off over-the-counter medications and veterinary drugs. There is no cost to drop off medications.
Sheriff Al Nienhuis said the box was set up after members of the community frequently asked when the next drug disposal event would take place.
“Because of this constant need, I felt it important to provide our citizens with a year-round location where they can dispose of unwanted medications, especially those that might be tempting to a drug abuser,” he said.
