Letters: RSVP seeks volunteers for Safe Pill Drop-Off day

To the editor:

The Retired Senior Volunteer Program helpers are to continue their involvement with the highly successful Madison County Safe Pill Drop-Off project.

This next opportunity to safely discard unused pills will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 30, at the Madison County Landfill. Since the project began in 2009, residents have dropped off over 740 pounds of unwanted medications for proper disposal keeping pharmaceuticals out of the water and off the streets.

For those who have not heard, Safe Pill Drop-Off is where residents can bring their expired and unused medications, unused veterinary meds, OTCs and sharps to the Madison County Landfill for proper disposal. Residents are asked to bring all needles in red bio hazard containers. There will be free shredding of confidential documents available on the same day.

RSVP seeks volunteers interested in helping the environment and preventing substance abuse to consider this important project. We need people to help on Saturday April 30 at the landfill to greet the public and flag cars. Volunteers work a two-hour shift and in just a couple of hours, know they have done a good job to address a critical community need.

Anyone interested in helping out can call Mary at RSVP, 684-3001 Ext. 103.

Mary Bartlett

Director, RSVP of Madison County
