One Heartland county isn't settling for a once a year drug take back day.

Jefferson County residents will now have a permanent place to dispose of old medications, no questions asked.

Nucara Pharmacy, located at Jefferson County Health Center at 2000 South Main Street in Fairfield will have public access to a medication disposal box.

This box is available for people wanting to dispose of medications. Access to the medication disposal box is Monday-Friday from 9 am-5 pm, and on Saturdays from 9 am-Noon.

This medication disposal box is being provided in conjunction with SIEDA Community Action.
