Drug Take Back Coming Up in April
Twice a year, the County participates in the DEA’s Drug Take Back, a quick and easy way to safely dispose of prescription medications. 2022’s first Drug Take Back in York County is 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 30, at the Public Works Building, 105 Service Drive. Bring unused or expired medication, and personal paperwork for shredding. A shred truck will be provided for on-site shredding services. The Beautification Committee will collect non-perishable foods for donations to a local food pantry. Plastic bags collected during this event will be included in the County’s Trex Plastic Bag Recycling program. (The date published in the Beautiful York County Calendar is incorrect. Please be sure to mark your calendar with the April 30 drop off date!)
Additional Notes for the Week…As seen in the most recent issue of Citizen News Quarterly, York/Poquoson Cooperative Extension’s Healthy Lawns program begins soon. More information is available on the website. Tick tock goes the clock! And this weekend we spring ahead with Daylight Saving Time beginning at 2 a.m. on Sunday. When you change your clocks, be sure to check your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors to be sure they are functioning correctly. Also, batteries should be replaced every six months. Get ready to dial 10 instead of 7! Beginning April 9, all local calls made within the Virginia 757 area code must be placed using 10 digits (area code + the 7-digit telephone number). On and after this date, calls placed using just 7 digits will not be completed.
