Operation Medicine Drop: Fort Bragg Fire and Emergency Services will be hosting a medicine drop at Fort Bragg for the Take Back Initiative. The event is at the North Post Exchange on Butner Road, Building 8-5050, March 25, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Any type of medications can be dropped off.
OMD, held twice per year, is a partnership of Safe Kids North Carolina, NC State Bureau of Investigation, the River keepers of North Carolina, and local law enforcement agencies, working together to encourage the public to safely dispose of unused and unwanted medication.
The event helps prevent accidental poisonings and drug abuse while protecting our waters. Since 2010, through the initiative more than 89.2 million dosages have been collected at almost 2000 OMD events.
Not only do we dispose of expired medications but we also collect unused medications in the original stock bottles for donation to Cumberland County Medication Assistance Program.
These medications will be used to provide for people who lack the income to buy their prescriptions.
