Keeping children away from medication is the best way to prevent them from being accidentally poisoned with it.

Operation Pill Drop offers a safe way to dispose of unneeded, unused or expired prescription drugs.

The event, put on by Safe Kids Greater Augusta, led by the Children’s Hospital of Georgia, and the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office, will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in the Kohl’s parking lot at Mullins Crossing in Evans.

For more information, call Rene Hopkins at (706) 721-7606 or visit www.gruhealth.org/safekids, or call the sheriff’s office at (706) 541-2856.

It would be thoughtful if the reporter had told readers how Safe Kids Greater Augusta was going to dispose of the pills, so responsible citizens could do the same thing the next time they needed to dispose of pills and there was no Operation Pill Drop in progress.


Pill Drop?

My pill drop is the commode. Is that no longer PC? I can't imagine that by the time it is diluted out a few billion or so to 1 through the sewage processing that it could be environmentally unfriendly.
