Cannon County Gets Second Permanent Drug Disposal Box

Dec 09,2019

A second permanent drug disposal box has been delivered and installed at the Woodbury Police Department. This project was a combined effort between the CCSAPC and Chief Womack of the Woodbury Police Department. This location, 965 West Main Street in Woodbury, is convenient for those that travel in or out of the Woodbury on Hwy 70S.

Woodbury Police Chief Lowell Womack states, “We are excited to have this new location for the citizens of Cannon County to drop off their old, expired and unwanted prescriptions free of charge with complete anonymity. There will be no questions asked. This will ensure that these pills will be kept out of the hands of the wrong people and be disposed in the proper manner.”

The other drop box in Cannon County is in the Sheriff’s Department lobby, located at 110 Alexander Dr, Woodbury.
Last month, with the help of local Coalition Partners, over 67 pounds of unwanted drugs were collected by the Cannon County Substance Prevention Coalition (CCSAPC) and turned over to the Dangerous Drug Task Force for incineration.
