From the Littleton Independent (Holly Cook):

Operation Medicine Cabinet, in partnership with the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office Community Resource Unit, Home Instead Senior Care, Brookdale Senior Living and the Arapahoe Library District, will be joining efforts Oct. 17 to help keep families safe while caring for the environment, by properly disposing of out dated and unused medication and keeping it out of landfills and water supplies. “The first event was a great success, not only did we collect loads of supplies for Project Cure, but we also collected over 125 pounds of loose, expired medications that were later destroyed by the Littleton Police Department,” said Kim Dahlquist, who leads the project in the area. Starting at 9 a.m. and lasting until 1 p.m., Operation Medicine Cabinet will host a drive-up, drop-off site for old medicines, thermometers, or used syringes at Koelbel Library, 5955 Sout Holly Street and Smoky Hill Library, 5430 South Biscay Drive.
