This Saturday October 24, 2020 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm the DA’s Office will participate in the 19th Drug Take Back Day. This is an opportunity for the community to properly and safely dispose of any narcotics, prescription medications, vaping devices and cartridges and over the counter medications. Pet medications will also be accepted. The Office will also offer education on prevention of potential drug abuse and overdosing, and the proper disposal of medications.
Safe disposal of over-the-counter and prescription medication is vital to prevent the misuse of these substances, and to end the harmful environmental impacts of disposing of them in landfill or through our water system.
COVID-19 safety measures will be followed. Face coverings must be worn at all sites by anyone dropping off medications as well as by those staffing the sites. All social distancing guidelines will be adhered to in order to maintain a minimum of six feet between individuals.
The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
