The community event that let people drop off their medications at the Buena Vista Pharmacy was sponsored by Buena Vista and Salida Police, Chaffee County Sheriff, Build A Generation, Chaffee County Public Health, local pharmacist volunteers and students from University of Colorado Skaggs School of Pharmacy. All medications turned in statewide are sent to Utah to be incinerated.
