Anchorage – Saturday, April 28th, is the 15th Annual National Drug Take-Back Day. This is your opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding your home of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.
In October, Alaskans turned in 3,735 pounds of prescription medications in 18 sites across the state. The US Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Agency sponsors this event twice each year to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of prescription drugs, while also educating the public about the potential for abuse of medications.
“Prescription drugs are often stolen from family and friends, taken directly from your home medicine cabinet,” said Rep. Tarr (D-Anchorage) “I encourage all Alaskans to help prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths by safely disposing your unused drugs.” WHAT:
Opportunity for Alaskans to safely dispose of unused prescription drugs (liquids and needles cannot be accepted, only pills or patches). The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
This Saturday, April 28th, 2018, from 10 AM to 2 PM
