Poisoning from prescription medication is a growing problem in North Carolina. Since 1999, nearly 4,500 people have died from prescription drug poisoning. Operation Medicine Drop is designed to protect your family: simply take your unused and expired medicines to a drop-off site where law enforcement can dispose of them properly.
That's this Saturday, March 24! Bring your unused and expired medicines to Morganton-Burke Senior Center, 501 N. Green Street, Morganton, NC 28655, from 10 am to 2 pm for proper disposal.
