BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- Officials in Warren County collected more than 1,000 lbs. of unused prescription drugs as part of the Drug Take Back weekend.
Authorities in bowling green and warren county say they received more than half- a-ton of prescription drugs during the take back.
KSP Post 3, The Bowling Green Police Department, and Greenwood High School were all drop-off points in Bowling Green on Saturday.
Officials said big numbers, like the ones from the weekend show just how many unused drugs are out there.
"It's a program that is working. You think about a half ton of medication and how much one single table weighs, that's a bunch," said Kentucky State Police Trooper Jonathan Biven.
Though more than 1,000 lbs. of pills were collected during the weekend, it's not the only opportunity to get rid of unwanted prescriptions. If you missed the event you can always go by KSP Post 3, or the Bowling Green Police Department and use their everyday drop-offs.
