National Prescription Take Back Day

National Drug Takeback Day Set For Saturday

This year the Moline Police Department collected more than 200 pounds of prescription drugs. It is the Drug Enforcement Administration's (DEA) way of helping the public dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs.

It's National Drug Take Back Day and the Barling Police Department partnered with the Sebastian County Sheriff's Department Saturday (Oct. 27). Expired or unused prescriptions can also lead to accidental poisoning, misuse or overdose.The Drug Take Back Day makes it easy for people to drop off their unused prescriptions. It is an opportunity to safely dispose of unwanted and unused prescription and over-the-counter drugs.

According to the DEA's website, during the last take back day in May they collected almost 475 tons of prescription drugs.

Modi also highlighted India's space programme and reiterated the government's commitment to send a manned space flight by 2022. The Summit will also focus on cooperation between New Delhi and Tokyo on India's development initiatives.

Deliveries of drugs to DEA Prescription Drug Take-Back Day events are confidential, with no personal information collected and no questions asked.

With the misuse of prescription drugs having developed into a major national health concern, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency is promoting a thriving initiative. The agency notes that it can not accept liquids, needles or sharps, only pills or patches. Flushing medications down the toilet or throwing them away creates a potential safety and health hazard.

PFPD is offering a coupon for a free cup of Krispy Kreme Coffee or an Original Glazed Doughnut to people that participate in their Drug Take Back Event. Expired drugs may have lost their effectiveness and therefore no longer be a safe and adequate treatment for the conditions for which they were prescribed.
