Permanent Drop Box for Prescription Drugs in Putnam County

Law enforcement agencies across West Virginia participated in National Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, and collected hundreds of pounds of unwanted and unused prescription medication. Sites in Putman and Kanawaha Counties participated in the event, with a large share of the drugs collected in Putnam County. Putnam Sheriff Steve DeWeese says a permanent drop box is now available at the sheriff's office in Winfield. All of the drugs collected will be properly disposed of by the US Drug Enforcement Agency.
