Copper Basin Received First Drug Drop Box

Copper Basin Received First Drug Drop Box

PINAL COUNTY, Ariz. – On Tuesday March, 12th, 2013 Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu was joined by Rural Metro Chief Deputy Bill Grubb and Pinal County Attorney Lando Voyles in unveiling the first prescription drug drop-off box for residents in the Cooper Basin area.

The Pinal County’s Prescription Drug Drop-Off Box program was introduced to help safeguard communities across the county. With the increase in prescription drug abuse and the fatal consequences of youths experimenting with leftover medications, there has been a growing demand to safely dispose of prescription medications. The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office and the Pinal County Attorney’s Office have joined efforts to install prescription drug drop-off boxes across the county.

  1. Should that be Copper Basin, not Cooper Basin??

    • My EXTREME bad. Yes, should be Copper. Just copy and pasted the title but still should have caught it. Unfortunately it went out to a lot of media outlets that way.

  2. Hi!

    I don’t know if this is the right place to send this…..

    We live in San Tan Heights…..what is being done about the AWFUL smell from the ‘water features/lakes’ off of Hunt Highway????

    IF this is NOT the right venue… you have the email address for the San Tan Heights HOA??

    Thanks for your time.

    • Hi Penni, if you go to the Home page of this website and look at the right column the HOA contact info is there close to the bottom. It has been a long standing point of contention for us (my wife and I) and something we’d like to see addressed if we get elected to the Board this year. Our feeling is if you can smell it, it’s not contained.
