OhioHealth is working with Cardinal Health, SWACO, the Drug Enforcement Agency, the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators the Delaware County Sheriff's Office and the Westerville and Genoa Township to host its fourth annual Medication Disposal Day.

Unwanted medications will be accepted for disposal with no questions asked.

The event is aimed at helping decrease prescription-drug problems and to help dispose of drugs in an environmentally safe way, as trace readings of drugs show up in water samples.

Last year, OhioHealth had 1,156 cars drop off 1,180 pounds of medications at six sites throughout central Ohio.

Drugs also will be collected for disposal at Riverside Methodist Hospital, Grant Medical Center, Doctors Hospital, Dublin Methodist Hospital and Grady Memorial Hospital.
