The Fall Medicine Take Back was held last Saturday at four area pharmacies. The event was a success collecting a total 1859 pounds of unused medicine! Properly disposing of medicine during the take back is important because it helps protect our local water quality. Thank you to the Ozarks Area Pharmacy Association, Greene County Sheriff’s Office, City of Springfield, The Community Partnership, event sponsors and volunteers that helped coordinate this event.
