The drive through for the public will close at 2pm, but we will need volunteers to stay until at least 4:00 for clean up.

Zero Tolerance Drug Diversion Policy


The Medication Cleanout event provides members of our community the opportunity to bring old, leftover, or no longer needed medications for free and safe disposal. Because of the nature of this event, volunteers may have access to numerous medications that range from over-the-counter to strong prescription drugs. It may seem wasteful to dispose of these medications when we may know of someone who could use them or we might even feel that we, ourselves, could use them. Unfortunately, in this situation, this is called drug diversion and in many cases, this is illegal. Every single medication that is collected at this event must be disposed of. Uniformed law enforcement officers are going to be in attendance at the event to collect some of the most dangerous medications and will also be providing security and oversight. In addition, we will have individuals dressed in plain clothes monitoring the area to ensure that drugs are not being ingested or stolen from the event. If you are uncomfortable handling the medications or being in this area, please let the Volunteer Coordinator know so you may be assigned elsewhere. We do not want anyone to take the chance of going to jail or potentially losing their medical license. If diversion activity does occur, we will be reporting it to the authorities immediately. Also, if you see any suspicious activity, please notify the Event Coordinator as soon as possible.
