Several area agencies and businesses are teaming up for another Drug Take Back and Shredding Event this Saturday at FirstBank on Highway 46. As part of a national drug take-back initiative promoted by the Drug Enforcement Administration, local law enforcement officers will be collecting medications 10 am-2 pm Saturday at the bank at 345 Highway 46 across from Sonic. The Drug Free Dickson Coalition, Dickson Police Department, Dickson County Sheriff’s Office and Dickson Law Enforcement Explorers Post 435 will accept any and all unused prescription or over-the-counter medications for safe and proper disposal according to DEA guidelines. Crime Prevention Officer David Cole said authorities will not be checking labels or recording names of the people who drop off medications, but will be accepting anything “no questions asked.” FirstBank is sponsoring a shredding truck at the event for the disposal of any old bills, tax records or other paperwork that contains personal information that could be used in identity fraud. The Dickson County Recycling and Litter Grant Program also will be on site to collect plastic and cardboard for recycling. The Dickson County Help Center will be accepting donations of non-perishable items for its food pantry and gently used items for its thrift store as well as cash donations. The help center has reported it needs donations of spaghetti sauce, peanut butter, rice, beans, boxed dinners, breakfast items and toiletries. For more information on Saturday’s event, call Cole at 441-9580 or Drug Free Dickson Coalition Coordinator A.J. O’Dell at 686-3128.
