Annually on the 4th Saturday in April and October KSAAT coordinates Knox County's Drug Take Back Day in coordination with the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications. If you are unable to make it out to an Annual Take-Back event, there are 24/7 drop-boxes located at the Knox County Sheriff’s Office, the Fredericktown Police Department and the Mount Vernon Police Department. These 24/7 drop-boxes remain anonymous; however, please do not put liquids, inhalers or illegals in the drop-boxes.
