LANCASTER - NATIONAL PRESCRIPTION DRUG TAKE BACK DAY IS THIS SATURDAY, APRIL 29th
***NATIONAL PRESCRIPTION DRUG TAKE BACK DAY IS THIS SATURDAY, APRIL 29th***
**DRIVE-THRU DRUG DROP OFF SITE AT TWIN DISTRICT FIRE HALL FROM 10am - 2pm**
It's a great time to clean out your medicine cabinet!... Protect our kids, families and environment by properly disposing of your unwanted and expired medicines. Medicines in the home are a leading cause of accidental poisoning and flushed or trashed medicines can end up polluting our waters. Rates of prescription drug abuse are alarmingly high - over half of teens abusing medicines get them from a family member or friend, including the home medicine cabinet, and often without their knowledge.
PRESCRIPTION DRUG ABUSE AND ADDICTION OFTEN LEADS TO HEROIN USE - WHICH IS CURRENTLY THE #1 DRUG PROBLEM IN OUR COMMUNITY.
THE LANCASTER POLICE DEPARTMENT WILL AGAIN BE HOSTING A DROP OFF SITE AT TWIN DISTRICT FIRE HALL - 4999 William Street in Lancaster.
(Thanks to our friends at Twin District Fire Department!)
So, this Saturday, April 29th...from 10:00am - 2:00pm...drive in....drop off...no questions asked.
