According to organizers, it was the best attended Take Back Day to date. There were 61 participants who brought in 59 pounds of over-the-counter medicines, 42 pounds of noncontrolled drugs, 5 pounds of controlled drugs, 19 pounds of ammunition and three guns.
According to Medicine Shoppe officials, the investment of a small number of tax dollars to destroy these medications offsets a huge amount of cleanup costs in the environment.

The project was initiated by Norton Police Chief Thad Hete. Also participating were the Norton Kiwanis, the Summit County Sheriff’s Office and Summit County Public Health.
