Cumberland County Sheriff Casey Cox has held six scheduled drug drop-off events through the communities of our county over the past year, where over a ton of prescription drugs and medication have been collected and properly disposed of; as a result of the Cumberland County sheriffs Office and the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) working together to protect our citizens and environment, a permanent Prescription Drug Drop-Off Box has been placed at the Sheriffs Office (90 Justice Center Drive, Crossville, TN, 38555) where citizens can dispose of any unused, unneeded, or outdated prescription medication. Such a box allows for the medication to be properly disposed of so that it neither endangers the environment nor our citizens, as many of the thefts and burglaries in Cumberland County come as a result of addictions to prescription drugs. Sheriff Cox said, I cant stress enough the importance of getting these unneeded or expired medications out of peoples homes by getting these drugs and medications out of our homes it not only makes citizens less of a target, it also protects our children. The old common method of disposing prescriptions was to flush them down the toilet. This is the worst thing you can do because the drugs could eventually end up back in our water supply. The drugs collected at the drop off box are taken to an Environmental Protection Agency-certified incinerator to be properly disposed of. Acceptable items to be dropped off as follows: prescription medication, all over-the-counter medication, pet medication, medicated ointments or lotions, liquid medications in leak-proof containers, inhalers, and pills in any packaging (glass, plastic containers, baggies/Ziploc, or foil).
