Drug Take Back Day (4/27)

If you have leftover prescription drugs in your medicine cabinet, you can dispose of them safely Saturday (4/27) at sites across Michiana.
It’s part of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency’s national Drug Take Back Day. You can drop the medications off from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 11 sites, including several local police and fire stations.
National surveys each year show the majority of misused and abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including someone else’s medication being stolen from the home medicine cabinet. Also, flushing medicine down the toilet or throwing it in the trash pose potential safety and health hazards.
