State Representative Amy Elik (R-Fosterburg) and the Wood River Police Department will be hosting a drive-through Prescription Drug Drop-Off event in Wood River on Wednesday, September 7 from 11:00 am-1:00 pm.

“Following a successful prescription drug disposal event last year, I am proud to partner up again with the Wood River Police Department in hosting another drop-off event,” said Rep. Elik. “This free service is a good opportunity for people to safely dispose of their expired and unwanted medications as it is unsafe to throw way or flush many medications.”

The prescription drug drop-off is an outdoor drive-through event that allows attendees to remain in their vehicle. Drivers should follow the marked lanes when entering and exiting the parking lot.
