Persons wishing to dispose of unwanted prescription drugs can do so Saturday at the Antelope County Sheriff’s Department.
From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the sheriff’s department, in conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the North Central District Health Department, will give the public an opportunity to prevent medicine abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted medications.
These items should be taken to the sheriff’s office at 202 Main in Neligh.
The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
What to bring to the collection:
• Expired or unwanted prescription and medicines
• Unused vitamins
• Veterinary medications
• Over the counter medicines
DO NOT bring needles, illegal drugs, cancer drugs or medical waste of any kind.
Clean out your medicine cabinet and bring all your unwanted medications to the event for proper disposal. All medicine will be disposed by the DEA.
Leave the label on the container but mark out your name and take to the collection site nearest you.
Important information about unwanted medicine
Never flush unwanted leftover drugs down the drain. This can lead to water contamination and is affecting fish, frogs and drinking water supplies
Never give your unwanted medicine to someone else to use-it could kill them.
Never take a prescription that was prescribed for someone else. It could kill you
Having unwanted drugs around the home presents a danger to children, guests and pets that could accidently ingest the drugs.
On Monday, the Elgin Volunteer Fire Department (EVFD) announced that they have opened an account at the Bank of Elgin for those wanting to help with the costs of the new equipment building.
To kick off the fund drive, the EVFD itself has donated $5,000 and the Elgin EMTs have matched that donation with $5,000. With an overall goal of $50,000, that leave’s $40,000 that they would like to see come from the general public.
The new building, being built on the now-demolished old fire hall site adjacent to the current building, will house trucks, the ambulance plus other necessary equipment, easing the congestion for crew members. According to EVFD member Denis Henn, this will be a great relief for the department. “It will open up storage, allow faster, easier access to equipment for fast, efficient response,” he said.
With the demolition done, work to clean up and prepare the site is underway. Once actual construction starts, the building is scheduled to be completed in 120 days.
A list of names and running total of donations will be published in the Elgin Review as donations are received.
