Washington County Sheriff W. Samuel Hill, in cooperation with the DEA, coordinated collection sites within Washington County for the disposal of unused prescription drugs. April 30th, 2022 saw participation in this local Take Back Day event. Take Back Day is a national event, but local events, like this one, provide an opportunity for Vermonters to prevent drug misuse and overdose deaths. This year, a total of 6,950 pounds was collected from Vermont’s 14 counties on Prescription Drug Take Back Day.
