The Taylorville Police Department along with many other law enforcement agencies in the area have been participating in a program to help prevent leftover prescription medications from ending up in the wrong hands. The program has been wildly successful in Taylorville, and Sgt. Alan Mills with the Taylorville Police Department anticipates the program returning to the city sometime soon.
Sgt. Mills says these programs gives residents an avenue to safely dispose of their leftover medications.
It used to be said that you should simply flush your old medications down the toilet, however that adage has since changed. The takeback program now allows for those medications to be properly disposed of.
Sgt. Mills appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
