VERMILION PARISH: New “Drop Box” available to help with discarding unused medications

KLFY - For the past several years the Vermilion Parish Sheriff’s Department has taken part in the DEA’s drug take-back program. This program was conducted twice a year and allowed persons from around the parish to bring in unused prescription medication to be disposed of in the proper manner, at no cost to them.

The Vermilion Parish Sheriffs’ Department has teamed up with the Attorney General’s Office to provide the people of Vermilion Parish access to discarding unused medication throughout the year. Attorney General Jeff Landry donated “Drop Box” bins to Sheriff’s who may have been interested in this program.
