How To Get Rid Of Those Old Meds You Don’t Take Anymore.
Have you ever found yourself with leftover pills or liquids from a prescritption you stopped taking? For instance I looked in my medicine cabinet and saw a couple of pill bottles of medicines I don’t take anymore. So what do you do with that stuff? Flush it down the drain? Nope! Can get in the watter supply. Throw it away? Nope. You never know who’s is going to go through your trash. (Seriously!) Plus Prescription drug abuse and theft on the rise, the Drug Enforcement Administration is constantly looking for ways to put a stop to the problem.
Here’s the solution. This Saturday, the DEA will be holding its third annual Prescription Drug Take Back initiative. Collection sites will be set up nationwide, where people can drop off their expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs for destruction.
Residents in southern Indiana who want to take advantage of the free, no questions asked service, may drop off their prescription drugs at the Indiana State Police Post on Highway 41 in Evansville between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Kentucky residents can go to the Kentucky State Police Post during those hours Saturday or to the Zion Rd. K-Mart. Only pills and liquid medication will be accepted. No needles will be accepted.
