[ISP] Indiana State Police Partners with the DEA in Eighth Drug Take-Back Day
Start Date: 4/16/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 4/16/2014
Entry Description

This spring, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) offers residents a chance to get rid of pills, cough syrup, and other unwanted medications that have been piling up around their homes during the eighth National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.

Held from 10 AM to 2 PM on April 26, 2014, the event is one of the few days of the year where residents can drop off expired or unused prescription medications without having to wonder whether they will be accepted—even controlled substances, such as ADHD drugs, are taken. This program WILL NOT ACCEPT NEW OR USED NEEDLES. The collection is intended for liquid and pill medications only.

Past Take-Back Day events have been hugely successful, collecting more than 324 tons of prescription medications nationwide last October alone. Citizens wishing to participate in this program may drop off their prescription drugs for disposal at any Indiana State Police Post throughout the state (except the Toll Road). This includes the Jasper and Evansville Posts on Saturday, April 26, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Dubois County will host two additional sites: The Saint Anthony Fire Station, 4068 E County Road 450 S, Saint Anthony and the Dubois Fire Station, 4579 N Second Street, Dubois. These two sites will be open from 10 a.m. until noon.
