Hi all,

I'm pleased to share one success story of many from WA State's local medicine take-back collection sites.

Please see the attached media release for details about the Lewis County Sheriff's medicine take-back program, celebrating four years of safe drug disposal.  The media release includes collection totals for each year from five drop box locations.  Lewis County, WA has a population of roughly 75,000.  See more info about Lewis County here:  http://lewiscountywa.gov/
