Prescription drug disposal event being held


Prescription drug disposal event being held at two locations today.

From 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. both, Sullivan West Volunteer Fire Department in Kingsport, TN and 421 Area Emergency Services in Bristol, TN, will hold this event.

Turn in your unused or expired medications.

The abuse of prescription drugs, particularly opioid painkillers, has resulted in epidemic levels of addiction, overdoses, and death across the country and in Tennessee. These unused and unwanted prescription drugs, when left in drawers and cabinets, are at risk of being used, stolen or sold by family members or visitors.

If you have any prescriptions you would like to drop off, you can do so at both locations, today.
