Police to collect unwanted drugs on Saturday

T he Whitehall Police Department will be collecting unused prescription medication from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 28, at the police department.

The department will be accepting any unused or expired medication and will dispose of them safely.

The effort is part of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s “Take-Back” initiative. Participants in the agency’s third National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day in October 2011 turned in more than 377,086 pounds of unwanted or expired medications for safe and proper disposal.

When the results of the three prior Take-Back Days are combined, the DEA, and its state, local, and tribal law-enforcement and community partners have removed 995,185 pounds of medication from circulation in the past 13 months.

If you have any questions about the effort locally, call the Whitehall Police Department at 499-1316.
