Pitch Your Pills Partnership
How to get started
The locations were chosen due to the secure locations and the respective agencies will monitor and maintain the collection of any items in the drop boxes for prompt disposal. To join in on the “Pitch Your Pills” campaign just bring your expired or unwanted medication, inhalers or bottles to the two drop locations Monday through Friday.
Here are some of the Do’s and Don’ts:
Do – Lock up your medications and keep them away from children and teens
Do – Bring unused or expired prescriptions and over-the-counter medication to one of the locations for proper disposal
Don’t – Flush your medication down the toilet. It is a danger to the environment.
Don’t – Bring needles or other “sharp” objects. They can’t be accepted.
The drop box locations are:
The Munford Police department located at 63 College St. in Munford between 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM, the Atoka Police Department located at 139 Wesley Reed Drive in Atoka between 8:00 AM and 4:30 PM, and the Criminal Justice Complex (front foyer) located at 1801 South College Street in Covington between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM.
