On the premises for the day was Norton Police Officer Jason Sams, shown below with Medicine Shoppe employee Brittany Arvay and some of what was collected at the event.
Take Back Day in Norton also included a way for citizens to remove unwanted firearms from their households.
This year, the event collected 15.5 pounds of federal legend drugs, 2 pounds of controlled substances (narcotics), 22 pounds of mail-order medications and 18 pounds of over-the-counter medications for a total of 57.5 pounds of medications that will now not pollute the environment nor be a hazard in a home, according to organizers. Also collected was 13.5 pounds of unused ammunition, but no firearms.
The next Take Back Day will be scheduled in May and will be announced early in 2014, according to organizers.
