Prescription Take Back Event!
The Fox Valley Metro Police Department, in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will host another National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day which will take place on Saturday, October 26, 2013, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The event will take place at the Village of Kimberly Municipal Complex, 515 W. Kimberly Avenue, Kimberly. This is a great opportunity for those who missed the previous events, or who have subsequently accumulated unwanted, unused prescription drugs, to safely dispose of those medications.
Prior to disposal, please remove the medications from their original containers (except if a liquid). Liquids, to include intra-venous solutions, WILL be accepted only if the liquids are in their original packaging. Additionally, inhalers and needles/sharps will not be accepted.
On April 27, 2013, 742,497 pounds (371 tons) of prescription medications were collected from members of the public at more than 5,829 locations manned by 4,312 state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies that partnered with DEA on the event. When added to the collections from DEA’s previous five Take-Back events, more than 2.8 million pounds (1,409 tons) of prescription medications have been removed from circulation.
The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.
