[ARCHIVED] Prescription Drug Take-Back Day in Gahanna

Drug Take-Back Day 2023

Franklin County to Participate in Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

This Saturday, SWACO will be holding its bi-annual Prescription Drug Take-Back Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office will be onsite in the Kroger parking lot at Hunter’s Ridge (300 S. Hamilton Road, Gahanna). 

This event is free and open to all Franklin County residents.

When done with prescription medicine, it’s easy to forget about it sitting unused in a drawer or medicine cabinet, but keeping unneeded medicine in the house can harm children, pets, teens and adults if accidentally ingested or misused. Properly disposing of medication also contributes to keeping our waterways and environment protected and healthy. Please do not flush medications. SWACO is bringing awareness to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency’s bi-annual Prescription Drug Take-Back Day events. Working in conjunction with communities across Franklin County, SWACO supports local law enforcements collection of unused or expired dry prescription pills from families and residents.

SWACO also partners with communities across Franklin County to make permanent collection sites available year-round. Visit the website here to learn more about the types of medications accepted, and details on drop-off sites throughout Central Ohio. 

This event will be held in various locations throughout Franklin County. The Gahanna location in 300 S. Hamilton Road. See Map below:
