Amy Edwards, (above, left) and Todd Long, (right) with the Sallisaw NOW Coalition participated in the National DEA Drug Take Back Event on April 27.
They collected and disposed of almost 60 pounds of prescription drugs.
"We partnered with and would like to say thank you to the Sallisaw Police Dept., the DEA Task Force and the Walmart Pharmacy of Sallisaw," stated Edwards.
For anyone needing to safely dispose of prescription drugs there are currently two drop boxes in our area. They both have 24/7 access and are located in the lobbies of the Sequoyah County Sheriff's Dept. and the Sallisaw Police Dept.
