The Lodge is located next to Yadkin Bank and will be held on Saturday, Sept. 28, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Operation Medicine Drop is a partnership of Safe Kids North Carolina, the Riverkeepers of North Carolina, Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of North Carolina and local law enforcement agencies.

“These groups work together to encourage the public to safely dispose of unused and unwanted medication by providing safe and secure ways for people to get rid of unwanted prescription and over-the-counter medications. Operation Medicine Drop helps prevent accidental poisonings and drug abuse while protecting our waters,” said Chief Monroe Wagoner, of the Elkin Police Department.
