Got Drugs? - National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day
Saturday September 26 , 2014 10am to 2pm at Richardson Civic Center
For the last four years or so, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has sponsored a national program to collect unwanted prescription medications. This year the Richardson Police Department will be accepting expired and un-needed prescription drugs at the "flag pole" on the West side of the police station located at 140 N. Greenville (first driveway on East side North of Beltline on Greenville).
The drug take back program is focused on prescription medications. Unused or expired prescription medications are a public safety issue, leading to accidental poisoning, overdose, and abuse.
NOTE: No "sharps" (needles, lances, etc.) are accepted.
Pharmaceutical drugs can be just as dangerous as street drugs when taken without a prescription or a doctor’s supervision. The non-medical use of prescription drugs ranks second only to marijuana as the most common form of drug abuse in America. The majority of teenagers abusing prescription drugs get them from family and friends – and the home medicine cabinet. Unused prescription drugs thrown in the trash can be retrieved and abused or illegally sold. Unused drugs that are flushed contaminate the water supply. Proper disposal of unused drugs saves lives and protects the environment.
Take-back programs are the best way to dispose of old drugs. But if a program is not available: Take the meds out of their bottles; mix them with something unappealing like used kitty litter or coffee grounds; seal them in a bag or disposable container, and throw that away in the trash.
