Drug disposal bags to be delivered around Harrison County

HARRISON COUNTY – In company with keeping drugs from getting into the wrong hands boxes of drug disposal bags were delivered this week to Joseph Maiorano PhD, instructor with the Ohio State University Extension office in Cadiz. In their meeting just last week Maiorano spoke about ordering the bags and was pleasantly surprised that they had already arrived.

“On behalf of the Harrison County Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition, I thank you and Deterra Systems for your kind donation of 720 Deterra drug disposal bags. As I had proposed in the application, we will distribute the disposal bags to Harrison Community Hospital, three local pharmacies, and the Cadiz Senior Center.

These Deterra Drug Dispoal bags will certainly help our coalition to accomplish it’s primary goal: reducing drug abuse in Harrison County,” wrote Maiorano in his letter of thanks via email.
