In conjunction with Red Ribbon Week (October 22-October 26), we want to make our
community aware of another initiative, Take Back Drug Week. In cooperation with North Canton
Police Department, our district would like you to know that there is an official drop off box
located at the North Canton City Hall 145 N. Main St., (Enter parking lot off Ream Ave. NW for
entrance to City Hall/ Police Department) North Canton, Ohio 44720. During this week, please
take the time to dispose of your expired and unused prescription and over-the-counter (OTC)
medications and properly dispose of them at the drop-off box. The drop off box is accessible
(24/7) and is located inside the back door of city hall and the police department. Any
medications can be dropped off except liquids. This is the only exception.
Research shows that early experimentation and abuse often happens with medications that are
available in your own home. Please use this week as an opportunity to have conversations with
your children and limit accessibility by disposing unused medications. North Canton School
District wants to work with all our parents to keep our students healthy, safe and drug-free!
