This Saturday Oct 28th is the DEA National Take Back Initiative. You can bring in any unused prescription medications and drop them off at the Police Department for proper disposal. We will have someone available to collect the medications from 10-2. PLEASE DO NOT BRING NEEDLES OR LIQUIDS as we are not equipped to handle those at this time.
Here is what the DEA had to say about the last Take Back day in April:
Last weekend the DEA and over 4,200 of its state, local, and tribal law enforcement partners collected 893,498 pounds of unwanted medicines—about 447 tons—at almost 5,400 sites spread through all 50 states, beating its previous high of 390 tons in the spring of 2014 by 57 tons, or more than 114,000 pounds. The top five states with the largest collections, in order, were Texas (almost 40 tons); California (32 tons); Wisconsin (31 tons); Illinois (24 tons); and Massachusetts (24 tons).
