Southeast Iowa residents will have the opportunity to shred old documents and dispose of expired medication this weekend in Ottumwa.
On Saturday, October 8th, a free community shredding event and prescription drug takeback will be held at the Quincy Place Mall parking lot from 9:00-11:00 AM.
Organizers say the event allows individuals to protect their identity by shredding documents that contain private information. South Side Drug will also be on-site collecting unneeded prescriptions and over-the-counter medications.
This will be a drive-thru event. Volunteers will take any items that are unwanted and shred or dispose of them.
