Operation Medicine Bottle

The HCSAC has been conducting prescription medication collection and disposal since 2010. In partnership with the MPD, HCSD and the DEA we have destroyed nearly six million dollars of opiate pain pills and other controlled substances in Hamblen County and all across the state of Tennessee. We own our own drug incinerator and have been contracted by law enforcement agencies and anti-drug coalitions all across the State of Tennessee to teach proper collection and disposal techniques as per DEA regulations. We are currently conducting two prescription medication disposals per year, one on the last Saturday of April and another on the last Saturday of October annually.
