Westshore citizens support Operation Medicine Cabinet
On behalf of the Westshore Council of Governments/Westshore Enforcement Bureau Narcotics Task Force we wish to thank the citizens of our six western suburbs (Bay Village, Fairview Park, Lakewood, North Olmsted, Rocky River and Westlake) for making the National Prescription Drug Takeback on Sept. 29 a successful event.
In addition to the 252 pounds of medications collected on that day, another 517 pounds were collected from the permanent drop boxes located in the six western suburban police department lobbies since May 1, 2012.
These collection efforts not only keep medications from being used illegally but will aid in preserving our environment's water supply. Our Westshore citizens should be commended for their commitment to this very important program.
