The first local medication drop-off has been deemed a success and will now become an annual event.
From 9 a.m. until noon on Saturday, Campbellsville/Taylor County Anti-Drug Coalition members and local police officers manned a drop-off site at the Wal-Mart Supercenter parking lot.
Karen Hayes, coalition co-chair, said she was hoping at least 10 people would drop off unwanted and outdated medication. Instead, Hayes said, there was a steady stream of residents.
In the end, 876 prescription medications and 374 over-the-counter medications were disposed of.
