As part of the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day, the agency will be collecting expired and unwanted medications that might otherwise fall into the wrong hands or become a disposal problem.
During the last nationwide initiative, Americans turned in more than 377 pounds of unwanted or expired medications. Take-Back sites were available in all 50 states. Since the inception of this program only 13 months ago, the combined law enforcement effort has taken in over 498 tons of prescription drugs for proper disposal.
A police department representative at 3510 Grandview St. will be on hand to receive all prescription drugs that are turned in during the event.
