Managing Editor

CEREDO – The Ceredo Police Department applied for a grant recently to purchase an incinerator for the disposal of pharmaceuticals collected at the town’s prescription drop-off.

Poston said response to the drop off box has been so great since the department placed it at the station six months ago, that the box is remaining full.
