Sheriff's Office Announces Take Back Events

April 18, 2018

The Catawba County Sheriffs Office announces upcoming pill collection events for National Take Back Day.  On Saturday April 28th the Sheriff's Office will have personnel at the Brookford Community Center and Longview Town Hall in the parking lot from 10:00AM to 2:00PM to collect old or unused medications.  You will be able to drive up and drop off your old medications so they can be disposed of properly.  The service is free and anonymous.

Also, on April 29th, they will have personnel set up at the main entrance gate to L.P. Frans Stadium from 2:00PM to 3:00PM just prior to the Crawdads home baseball game.  By dropping off your old and/or unused medications at Take Back Events, this ensures they are disposed of properly and do not find their way into our landfills or lakes and rivers.
